Despite legal challenges from the American Trucking Associations over truck-only tolling in Rhode Island, truck drivers don’t appear to be avoiding driving through the state, according to numbers reported by the Providence Journal. The state’s trucks-only tolling, which only charges Class 8 and larger vehicles, has pulled in more revenue so far than initially projected.

The Providence Journal reports that, through the first six months of tolling on I-95, the tolls have averaged 186,698 trucks per month and $617,805 in billable charges each month. These numbers are higher than the Rhode Island Department of Transportation projected for that time frame.
