THE GA 400 TOLL IS GONE!!!
Today around 11 AM, the Georgia State Road and Tollway Authority ceased all toll collections on GA 400!!!

To celebrate this momentous occasion, I decided to take a trip up 400 and through the toll plaza.

Here's the video I posted to YouTube...



Thanks to Governor Nathan Deal for upholding his promise to make GA 400 a toll-free ride. As for former Governor Sonny Perdue and former SRTA director Gena Evans... well... I believe the best advice my folks ever gave me was "if you have nothing nice to say, then don't say anything at all."

That's it for now. Thanks for reading and enjoy your toll-free ride on GA 400!!!
