A toll planned for the Sakonnet River Bridge brought out dozens of people in Portsmouth Friday, protesting the 4–bucks, it'll soon cost to cross it.
Heavy downpours weren't enough to stop protestors from showing their disgust with the proposed tolls on the newly renovated Sakonnet River Bridge.
Betty Geary was just one of the dozens of sign carrying protestors who were camped out along East Main Road in Portsmouth, venting their frustration, over the proposed 4–dollar toll.
"It's gonna kill us, it's gonna raise the prices of everything, every small business will die on this island." said Betty Geary.
The protestors seemed to get a lot of support from people driving by honking their support.
But it will take a lot more than supportive drivers–by to make the state, reverse its decision to put a toll the bridge.
Although some protestors say that if their voices aren't loud enough to convince the state to change their mind about the toll then they just won't pay it.
"It's my line in the sand, I have no intention of paying the toll." said Tiverton resident Jim O'Dell.
