It is disturbing to realize that toll roads are making a comeback in the United States. Originally, of course, many roads (not quite highways yet) were toll roads. Some of the newer highways and bridges built in the 20th century were also toll roads, usually referred to as turnpikes. Now we might call it privatizing the roads.
I haven't driven much in Europe, all of it confined to either trucks in Germany when I was in the army (stationed in Augsburg) or in the U.K. last year. That was an adventure. It was disappointing that there are hardly any "real" British cars around for ordinary people. Gone are the Triumphs, Austins, Rileys, Rovers, and MGs. We wound up with a Volkswagen van that not only had right-hand drive but a six-speed manual transmission which of course had to be shifted with my left hand. The first half-mile was rough but after than, I was fine. Actually the biggest problem was having so many gears.
The roads in Great Britain were perfectly fine, however, and completely indistinguishable from an American highway. Getting through the small towns was not so easy but not much more difficult than it is here. But even here there are cities with an old center (of town) that has narrow streets. I also had trouble with the roundabouts, but only fron a direction standpoint. Anyway, we survived.
