Today's Ride Trivia Quiz question was: Chicago-area commuters were told they might be able to stop doing this as early as 1976. They're still doing it. What is it?
Memories run long in Chicago -- many people knew this one. The first with the correct answer was Oscar Anderson of Chicago, who knew that we were supposed to stop paying tolls as early as 1976. The tollways were supposed to become freeways when construction was paid for. But the state kept building more tollways, which needed more money, and so the tolling went on.
