An $8 toll is ridiculous.
You wouldn't be affected going to the stadium. It's for downtown to I think somewhere in the 80s. Yankee Stadium isn't even in Manhattan...it's in the Bronx.
Edit: If global warming and pollution is really a concern, then people are going to have to start making some sacrifices. It starts w/taking public transportation. NY has high instances of asthma due to the air quality. As the Mayor said...we can either pay from our pockets, or we'll pay in other ways. I have no issue with this.
