Should MA Keep Jobs For Toll Collectors?

Gov. Deval Patrick says the state’s toll system will be fully automated by 2015.

Should MA Keep Jobs For Toll Collectors?

Though users of the EZPass service never have to stop for a toll collector on the Mass Pike now, in just over two years, no one will have to.

Gov. Deval Patrick said today that all toll collectors will be phased out by 2015 to make way for a fully automated toll taking system on the Mass Pike, according to Boston.com.

Patrick the state will provide a “dignified and soft landing” for the 410 toll workers who would be laid off, according to the news site.

Do you think the state should move to the new automated system or should Massachusetts stick with the system in place now? Tell us in the comments.
