I think the price we pay is to much for what we are getting. The toll booths leading into 1 lane is very dangerous. The drivers in the toll pass lane cannot always see the cars in the other lanes.

My family was on the way to the Destin, and we needed to cross the bridge. Well, about 100 feet onto the bridge and a pickup truck rear ends us. Reckless drivers are all over this bridge. Stay away!!!!!
