You haven't been through some parts of North Central Florida lately. Kind of like West Virginia, without the hills.

Watch out for Wisconsin too.

Those folks charge $297 and change for about 14 over. It's a total cash cow.

I asked the cop when I got yanked, if that was the standard out of town rate and he said to me, well, if it were only 10-12 over, it'd be about $175.00.

I said, why so much, and he said, well, you folks in IL have tolls. I said, what if I gave you .50? He wasn't amused as he handed me the ticket, which I had to pay on the spot with a credit card.

Granted I was speeding (not while towing), but still felt it was a little steep for 14 over.
