Like State Store employees, PA Turnpike Toll Collectors have an uncertain future.  There is a proposal to make the Pennsylvania Turnpike all-electronic.  E-ZPass transponders and cameras may make humans obsolete on the turnpike.

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission is reviewing bids for a year-long study to make the 545 mile toll road automated.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette puts a human face on the story.  You can read it here: http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/10318/1103248-455.stm

  2. I use the Turnpike at least 4 times a week.I would rather have a human take my tolls than a machine.All these electronic devises are getting me to think that the government wants to know where we drive and how often.I believe the government is keeping track of people via their GPS systems.I’m sure I’m not the only one who believes that.
