Toll road officials in San Francisco, California want the authority to seize any vehicle accused of "cheating" on toll payments. A Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA) presentation yesterday called for new powers that would ensure that the agency collected the maximum amount of revenue each year. BATA will ask the state legislature to adopt legislation granting BATA the authority to locate and tow away any vehicle it says has not paid up. It also would like the authority to revoke the driver's license of a vehicle owner accused of not paying a notice of violation. Despite the tough talk, however, the tolling agency grudgingly admits some violations are not actually the fault of the motorist.

Well, I can see there point a bit better when it comes to the speeding issue. Those are there to keep people safe. Why do you need to go thirty over the limit? You can kill somebody.
I am not justifying it, but your laws are different than oursd. Trucks are allowed to block traffic for miles, and it is an irritant to say the very least. Many of the States have two limits, as should we. One for passenger cars, one for transport trucks.
