The state and city budget deficits are really taking a toll on California drivers. Literally. The Golden Gate Bridge is now going to charge a $3.00 toll for Carpools. It used to be free. Parking tickets in San Francisco have increased substantially and even the parking meters have extended hours till 10 PM. It used to be 6 PM. The bridge district's board of directors on Friday voted unanimously, to charge tolls to carpoolers not only on the Golden Gate Bridge, but all 7 bridges. It is all about balancing the budget. Regular toll on all bridges will go from $4.00 to $5.oo on July 1st.
