MTAC to film video on tolls

MTAC is producing a video about the negative impacts of tolls on the Connecticut trucking industry. Since many members are not able to take an entire day off of the job on short notice to come to the Capitol, MTAC believes producing a video will help spread our message.

We need your involvement in order to make an effective video. Filming is scheduled to begin on Thursday, Jan. 31 at 10 a.m. at the MTAC office building. Register through the MTAC website to let us know that you will be coming.

MTAC seeks participation from any and all of the following: business owners, CEOs, CFOs, controllers, independent contractors, drivers, and operations managers, to name a few.

Come to the MTAC building on Jan. 31 prepared to talk about what your business does, and how Connecticut tolls would impact your business.

As a reminder, tolling proposals that have been on the table during the last couple of years call for tolling current highway capacity, which you have already paid for with fuel taxes, registration fees, etc. For your information, below are some suggested toll rates (on a per-mile basis) from a study released in November 2018 by Connecticut DOT consultant CDM Smith.
