But at least now you know you don’t have to stick that unsightly transponder to your windshield. You can stash it in your ashtray and fool any RFID sensors in other areas. Forget the overheads on the approach to the main tollbooth. I tested mine on the bank of cameras next to the tollbooth only, and it worked.
If you have doubts, test it yourself. Then call or go online to access your account and verify the transaction. Even if it didn’t record your transponder, your license will be photographed, and the computer will reveal that you have an account, so there’s nothing to lose.
wondering why you should bother with all this, then go ahead and peel off the
plastic and stick your transponder on your windshield. Now go and park your car in anywhere in
The day will come when the tolls are raised. When that happens, the thousands who have transponders may turn the tide by doing a very simple thing: lining up at the tollbooths to pay the full price. A day or two of that is all it will take to send the pikers a message.
Keeping tolls down accrues to
the poor, and by extension, the rest of us.
Not everyone in

The Joe Baskett Society is composed of anonymous folk who are of purer eyes than to behold evil, even on their windshields. You become a member by acting on these instructions. You can quit anytime by simply ignoring them.
As a sign of solidarity, all JBS members are invited to wear a paperclip on a lapel or shirt pocket, on Thursdays only. This sign is borrowed from the Norwegians under Nazi occupation during WWII, who wore paperclips on their lapels, or linked in bracelets, as a signal of resistance.
The JBS is named for a sawmill worker who can’t join because he’s the mascot. We at JBS only use human mascots. The only political implication of membership is that you hate Nazism in all its modern manifestations.
No mascots have been harmed during the creation of this webpage. -JBS
