Less power to the people

Less power to the people To gain access to one of America's tollroads you must first throw the appropriate coins into a basket at steering wheel height. Then a traffic light changes from red to green, and the tollmachine flashes the words Thank you in your direction. From seeming fear that the machine may feel that its courtesy is unappreciated, there is now a gadget on the market. For 39.95 you can become the proud possessor of an electronic device which attaches to the front of a car and accepts the tollbooth's gratitude with the words You're welcome. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Industrial Management Emerald Publishing

Abstract

To gain access to one of America's tollroads you must first throw the appropriate coins into a basket at steering wheel height. Then a traffic light changes from red to green, and the tollmachine flashes the words Thank you in your direction. From seeming fear that the machine may feel that its courtesy is unappreciated, there is now a gadget on the market. For 39.95 you can become the proud possessor of an electronic device which attaches to the front of a car and accepts the tollbooth's gratitude with the words You're welcome.
