A toll road, (also known as a tollway, turnpike, pike, or toll highway, especially if it is constructed to freeway standards), is a road for which a driver pays a toll (that is, a fee) for use. Structures for which tolls are charged include toll bridges and toll tunnels. Non-toll roads are financed using other sources of revenue, most typically fuel tax or general tax funds. Tolls have been placed on roads at various times in history, often to generate funds for repayment of toll revenue bonds used to finance constructions and/or operation. The building or facility in which a toll is collected may be called a toll booth, toll plaza, toll station, or toll gate.
Avoiding toll roads is possible unless you are coming up to a state line where the toll is collected. If you happen to come to a toll you will be required to pay.
