Average bloke cannot afford extra tolls

I read an article recently in Peninsula News in which Terrigal MP Mr Adam Crouch was spruiking the benefits of the North Connex for commuters to the city.

I don't think our esteemed Local Member has any idea what it's like to be a battling commuter on a fixed income.

On top of the $8 toll of the North Connex, there is the M2 and Lane Cove tolls both ways and then the Bridge toll southbound.

I, for one, refuse to pay the $30 extra per day.

This only shows how disconnected our politicians are from the working man.

I can't take public transport because of the odd hours I work, I must drive.

At 3am, the roads are still busy, not that any politician would have a clue about that I expect.

Do the politicians really think the average bloke can afford this on top of petrol, for the saving of 15 minutes travel time?

I am concerned that they may close a lane on the Pacific Highway to force you to take the toll roads.

It's not unprecedented.

I am sick of these grandstanding politicians saying "look what I have done for you".

We do live in the lucky country but we are very unlucky with our local politicians who have no idea what it's all about.
