Turnpike Toll Becomes An Inside Joke

December 26, 2009 at 2:32 PM | Random, Wichita | No Comments

As I took the exit for Kellogg on my way back to Wichita from Kansas City, I was pleasantly surprised to see the price appear on the 7 segment displays: $4.00. And then the lady in the booth says it aloud, “Four dollars,” in little to no inflection in her voice. “Ya dig…”, I whispered under my breath with a wide grin and hand her my credit card.

Side note: I love paying tolls with a credit card. I only found out that you could do this maybe 7 or 8 years ago when I was caught without change on the turnpike. The credit card was my plea of desperation–turns out it was universally accepted on the KTA. You don’t get to do that everywhere, though.
