Bikes on car rooftops cost more on the Ohio Turnpike

Got a bike strapped to the top of your car? The Ohio Turnpike now considers that to be a height classification that demands the same charge as a large truck, according to a front page article in today's Plain Dealer (to read, go to "Rooftop items raise Ohio Turnpike fees").

The Ohio Turnpike appears to be the only toll road in the country where motorists pay more if something is attached to the top of the vehicle or secured in the bed of a pickup truck.

Are you like Chris Huck from Navarre, a bicyclist who was charged the extra amount on a recent trip to Michigan and is now avoiding the Ohio Turnpike??
