Obviously even minor accidents are going to fuck things up, this isn't some sort of magical freeway

If I ever see a group of idiots analyzing their accident damage on the port Mann again ill be sure to throw whatever beverage I have in my vehicle at the time at you

I think it would be cheaper to pay the 1,50 than to wait 2 hours at pattulo :P

Glad I live on the north side of Fraser :P

Congratulations on grasping the simple concept that seems to have escaped so many.

What's the point of the sticker if they have cameras scanning plates anyway?

Silly Vancouver ideologists will refuse to pay the toll for the fact of refusing to pay the toll.

Fine by me.


I think it will still be the way it is for a few weeks until all the people use up their 20 free trips. Then it will get thinner. Can't wait for the whole freeway to be finished.

Personally, the socialist in me thinks they should toll all the bridges and put it towards road infrastructure and it would also push everyone to take the bridge that makes the most sense for them. Then no one would avoid the toll bridge due to the cost and it would make traffic fall more even between all the crossings.

No one but ICBC is allowed to hold personal information attached to plates. So they have to pay a processing fee to ICBC to find the address to send the bill. You save on the cost, as they forward that cost to you. I'm going to try to take the sensor out of the sticker and see if it still works. That way I can tuck the sensor in the bottom corner of the windscreen and not have an ugly fat sticker in the middle of my windscreen,

Exactly what I would have ideally wanted. This way the tolls for the bridges will be cheaper as well. Instead of 1.50 for port man, it would be like 50 cents or a little more. Once they make back the money they need, they can remove the tolls off the bridges. This makes a lot more sense to me but Translink and making sense don't go hand in hand.

There was absolutely no increase in traffic on the Patullo today, at least going into Surrey.

Thank goodness.

Incase anyone else didn't notice, the #1 from 232 to the bridge is now 100KPH. Still way too slow IMO I was cruising with all the other traffic at 125-130KPH and didn't even realize it until I actually looked at my speedo.

Dammit... listening to the traffic this morning, St. Johns is SERIOUSLY backed up from an accident, everyone's going Mary Hill instead, which is seriously backing THAT up... I'd just take the Golden Ears and then the Port Mann and avoid it all heading downtown, except I have to stop for parts just off United. Guess I could still do it and then double back...

I still only do about 100-105kph but good to know they've finally gotten out of the 90kph it used to be.

Is it just me, or does it seem like there is an accident on the new Port Mann every other day, and then it fxxks the traffic up big time?

They will never do that with the Port Mann. I can guarantee it. It's a massive income for the government. Plus it helps pays for a lot of shit.
