Time for toll

May 1, 2013
Fort Myers Beach Bulletin, Fort Myers Beach Observer

To the editor:

You are living and visiting a barrier island. That is usually only one way on and one way off. Fort Myers Beach is blessed with a bridge at either end. Take your choice. When you pay the big toll on Sanibel/Captiva, you stay there.

The solution to the problem with our traffic is a toll (one dollar on, one dollar off). Residents use transponders. You'll think twice before leaving, for any reason. Everything is here: two good groceries, Topps and Publix, two medical facilities and two conveniently located fire stations in case of emergency.

Think about it. This would eliminate cars lining up to go off island to shop and force merchants to stock more items truly needed and restaurants to flourish. It is the best location around with the very best sunsets. Relax and enjoy, take time to reflect. The island had so much potential, the possibilities are endless.
