Toll Plaza on the California 73 Freeway near Laguna Hills.

If you want to take the shot-cut between San Diego and Long Beach you have to pay $4.50.

Why are they so big? Cool shot anyway.

Do they need them to store all the money?
Fortunately, we have few tolls in the UK - they are mostly for bridges and tunnels.

Interesting toll booths. Why would one need a multi story toll booth?

These look very futuristic...cannot be compared to those on french! Great compo, Walter!

Cool architectural shot - very nice tool booths.

Wow.....those structures are very cool
but i guess, with the money they are collecting
they can afford to be creative ;)
Superb shot Walter!

Interesting toll booths compared to the East coast.
Yes it is highway robbery to use the tolls.
J. Scott Coile24-May-2010 17:55
So modern. I guess you could easily spend that much more the "longer" route.
LynnH24-May-2010 17:14
Nice capture of the shadows and lines!!

Where the transportation Piper lives. Good one!
Norbert Fortelny24-May-2010 07:20
Wouldn't have guessed what that is.

We no longer have Toll Booths, just toll cards that still cost money to pay for the tunnels we don't want :))
Brett Corbin24-May-2010 03:02
Great shot, do they have elevators in them:)
Jim Coffman24-May-2010 02:30
