No Tolls In Texas
A new toll discount program that allows a select group of veterans to drive toll-free on Central Texas toll roads has been overwhelmingly approved. The new toll free discount program, which goes into effect on November 1, 2018, will allow qualified veterans to drive toll-free on interstate 183A toll, the 290 toll, the 71 toll lane, and the future 183 South and state highway 45SW toll roads. Under Texas law, toll authorities are allowed to offer discounted or waived tolls for certain classes of veterans. For instance, disabled veterans and Legion of Valor or Medal of Honor recipients will be allowed to drive toll-free. Texas House Bill 3139 was passed September 1, 2009 after veterans said they were having difficulty affording travel to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical facilities. All eligible veterans who wish to participate in the toll discount program will be required to register with the agency using the online portal on their website.
For a limited time, Sears is offering active duty military and veterans a discount of 20% off regular-priced merchandise and 5% off sale prices for tools and Lawn & Garden merchandise. Call ahead to ensure participation and current status of discount.
