Incidentally, just because you don't happen to see automated toll systems that use transponders, instead of employees, doesn't mean that such systems don't exist -- even in New York.

- toll plazas have to be designed/built/maintained
- employees are needed to take tolls and maintain the plazas
- toll roads require some kind of administration/oversight as well as auditing services
