Since The Toll Roads of Orange County did away with cash collection completely two years ago, they have seen an increase in traffic without the congestion and an increase in fare collection without costs to labor.
While toll roads have been commonplace for decades around the country, they are fairly new to Southern California, and learning how to use them has been hard for drivers.
On Wednesday Ebrahim Mahda sued The Toll Roads in federal court, claiming the payment system and its accompanying signage is confusing, perhaps on purpose. His attorney is seeking class-action status for the lawsuit and $5 million restitution of penalties.
