NH switched its tolling last year, we have a high speed lane (55mph) where you do not have to stop but there is still lanes for cash that are seperated a mile out by dividers and lots of signs. It works well. On our other toll roads they had previous switched to easy pass with the middle lanes you drive thru at 25 mph and the right sides are cash. Despite the multiple signs tourists can not read and often swing over from the easy pass to cash lanes 5 lanes over without looking or stopping. I dont see how having no cash lanes will work unless they make people get offbefore the bridge....

There will only be fastrak lanes, if you don't have one, they mail you a bill. No stopping for anyone.

I used un staffed toll roads all over France in 1998. The French seemed to have figured it out. In France, you pay with credit or debit cards. There aren't any people for miles, so you just do it.
