Virginia Officials Push Hard on E-ZPass Awareness for I-66 Tolls — State officials plan to encourage more drivers to get an E-ZPass or E-ZPass Flex. Around half of drivers using Interstate 66 do not have the devices, even though new tolls lanes will open in less than two months. [WTOP]

  • Crime Stoppers

    Any news about the high police presence around Hunters Wood’s last night?

    • Chuck Morningwood

      I want to know too. Why were all the police high around Hunters Woods last night? I thought potheads were a Lake Anne problem.

    • Mike M

      Um, yeah, another night where the Captain allocated his resources properly. It looks odd, but actually makes sense.

  • Chuck Morningwood

    If DC doesn’t want this, we should invite the artist to show it here in Reston. Heck, I would even volunteer to host it on the north forty of Hacienda Morningwood.

  • Grrrrrr

    I-66 toll = yet another example of govt nickel-and-diming us to death
