Re: “Narrows toll hike recommended as fight looms” (TNT, 3-20).
Here is what happens when you raise Narrows Bridge tolls: People do not cross the bridge to shop or visit either Tacoma or the Kitsap Peninsula. As the tolls have increased, it has become cheaper for many of us to shop online.
Before the second bridge was built, twice a month we would go to Harbor Freight, the Tacoma Mall and the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium. Afterwards, we dropped to once every other month. When the tolls were raised last year, we ceased going to Tacoma entirely.
