Just about everything you buy is trucked in. If the New York State Thruway Authority has its way, truckers will see a rise in tolls and that hike could take a toll on your own wallet.
The New York State Thruway Authority proposed a 45 percent toll hike on the thruway.
"Even if you are not affected directly by this, the cost in goods will be affected if this goes through," said Robach.
Officials at the New York State Thruway Authority say trucks cause damage to roads so they should help keep the roads safe for all drivers.
Senator Robach and local businesses, like Klein Steel Service, disagree.
"Truckers in New York State pay the highest fees and tolls of any state in the union except Oregon and we feel like that's unacceptable," said John Batiste of Klein Steel.
With the increase, all companies that ship and transport goods will be impacted. That price will be handed down to consumers when they go to buy goods.
But that's not all...Senator Robach says the hike could mean more traffic on residential roads meaning more hassle for drivers.
"You will see people using alternative routes. They will be on other routes besides the thruway which will make congestion and greater traffic for people in residential and other areas, so there's really no reason. There's nothing good about this," said Robach.
If the proposal is approved, the toll hikes would go into effect by October.
