Man re­fuses to pay Con­fed­er­a­tion Bridge toll

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

An On­tario man did some­thing re­cently that many Is­landers have prob­a­bly thought of do­ing at one time or an­other – he re­fused to pay the toll to cross the Con­fed­er­a­tion Bridge. Ac­cord­ing to East Prince RCMP, an of­fi­cer was called to the bridge toll plaza on July 31 at around 4 p.m. to in­ves­ti­gat­ing a com­plaint of a man re­fus­ing to pay and hold­ing up traf­fic.

What the man’s mo­tives or concerns were are un­known. The man did even­tu­ally pay and leave the Is­land af­ter hav­ing a con­ver­sa­tion with the RCMP of­fi­cer.

It costs $46.50 to cross the Con­fed­er­a­tion Bridge, plus $8 per ad­di­tional axle. It is $18.50 for a mo­tor­cy­cle to cross.
