and how do users of rental cars pay these tolls?

Toll company bills rental car company, rental car company charges
card used for
rental. At least in my experience. The layers of administrative
surcharges make
that an expensive option.


precisely!


precisely wrong: if you heed the warnings and register in advance or
within 3 days and pay the tolls there's no surcharge etc whatsoever.

the rental company charge you 30 dollars for a 3 dollar toll, that you
would have happily paid some other way if you could.

it really shouldn't be like that (As in, the problems likely to be
encountered by the uses of rental cars should have a solution
engineered in to the system)


Just another form of tourist tax.


no - though it might be said to be a tax on the stupid
