Description

Reporters from The Morning Call look at how government officials benefitted from raising the toll hike for bridges connecting New Jersey to Pennsylvania. The heavy increase in toll for these bridges was on the pretext of having developing a fund for rebuilding the bridges in case of any terrorist attacks. But as these reporters found out the government officials were actually playing on people's fear, increasing toll rates and using the money for economic development projects that would increase their power.
