Thanks, I know I absolutely should and it's sort of on my list of things to do eventually. It would be nice just for the 1 or 2 times a year when I do accidentally get on a toll road.
Also, while I hate toll roads, I do agree it makes sense especially where 18-wheelers and commercial trucks are involved. I remember reading some absolutely ridiculous statistic about a single 18-wheeler having a wear-and-tear impact on the road equal to like hundreds or even thousands of standard size cars because the damage done is exponential based on weight. Still, I'd personally be in favor of singling out commercial vehicles and making them pay tolls for using roads rather than penalizing tax-paying locals driving normal vehicles too.
Regarding coin deposits, I actually had the opposite experience once several years ago. I took my rolled coins in to the bank to be deposited and was told that they had to be UNROLLED. Which actually that makes perfect sense to me because it seems like people could scam coin rolls some kind of way. It seems like the bank would want to see each and every coin it accepts.
