Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Ninety five and they're just as jammed in there Justice cramped and in Maryland, they had a unique idea. They said, hey, why don't we add a lane and do a toll which by the way is what Virginia did? And it actually did do some benefit now is in the told her out of control the track rates are kind of crazy at some point. And they got certain handle on of it looks like or at least they're starting to it sometimes, but there is an option at least for people who want to pay to get into the fast track lane. And by the way, also I think that it does alleviate the traffic in some respects on on four hundred five by adding that extra lane even though that it's toll only at certain times.
