Allen Dominic started this petition to Virginia Governor Governor Ralph Northam and

Elizabeth River Tunnels has been legitimately robbing the residents of the 7 Cities by the BILLIONS even past the point full investment return.

At one point in time 500$ of Tolls could turn into 15,000$ until Governor Northam passed a Bill setting the Maximum an individual could be charged at 2200$.

HOWEVER, It does NOT restrict how they get to that 2200$ and how QUICKLY. 

 

Elizabeth River Tunnels has higher penalties then any Creditor organization in History. 
The company has been granted Powers and Control over VA residents and our LIVELIHOOD that no other establishment has or should EVER HAVE at the expense of mostly the poor and less fortunate community for the sake of STRICTLY PROFIT!!

 

Delinquent Tolls allow the company to suspend your registration and ability to register a car WHICH IS A TICKET-ABLE OFFENSE. If you can’t drive to work?? How can you pay either ??? It’s blatant sabotage and quite frankly a PROXY ENTRAPMENT of poor minority groups. 

In this game of LIFE, your BEHAVIORS ultimately DEFINE the INTENT behind your ACTIONS. 

 

In this case, Elizabeth River Tunnels has REFUSED to release the information defining the data that allows them to calculate and define why their ridiculous fees are what they are. 

This isn’t a very common, moral, or even ethical business practice. 
for instance; Dominion Electric and HRUBS define their fees on all bills based on what every penny is covering.

yet... a 4$ toll and 70$ of Late fees consist of ... what? 2 sheets of paper being mailed out every month? And according to the most recent agreement toll prices are set to increase at 3.5% every year until 2070??? A 50 YEAR PROFIT INFLATION TERM??? What?? 

Not only does the Portsmouth tunnel mainly negatively impact POOR FAMILIES ... the biggest groups effected are AFRICAN AMERICAN RESIDENTS. 52.8% of Portsmouth population is African American and another 7% are other minorities. 

The Portsmouth Unemployment Rate Always seems to be in the bottom 3 out of 20 if not last meaning the highest . Surely this has to correlate with the negative impact being described. How can one realistically be employed and stripped of efficient transportation left with no ability to satisfy Registration Citations Nor 400% Late Fees.

  

 

What is/are Elizabeth River Tunnels? 

 

They are currently a HUGE hindering roadblock to not only the Virginia Economy, not only predominantly African American Families and others, not only additional Tax Revenue Generation, To the PROGRESSION OF HAMPTON ROADS. 

 


Either the 7 Cities (Norfolk, Portsmouth, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Newport News, and Hampton)  Revenue income collectively  is benefiting from this connection and domino effect via additional non-registered vehicle Citing’s OR our State Government takes EXECUTIVE ACTION known as an ECONOMIC INTERVENTION based on Fee Gouging and Abuse of Singularity or Monopolization. If it has a charge associated it’s a profitable establishment which means it has to have a competitor OR Government Regulation being the only option/service offered to travel to Portsmouth efficiently. 

License suspension has been restricted for late fees and court fines due to the overwhelming evidence in reference to the horrendous negative impact on the community . That’s why SB1013 was passed! THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE IN SUSPENDING VEHICLE REGISTRATION. This is an obvious loophole that is unconstitutional and SKIPS DUE PROCESS!  

Gov. Ralph Northam announced earlier in December 2018 that his administration will strengthen the chances of repeal by proposing in his budget to replace the revenue generated by DMV reinstatement fees. What does that mean? Why would they need to generate the recently allocated 8.9 million in reinstatement fees via means of fraudulent gouging? 

This can’t be what it looks like. 

 

What’s in it for Virginia you ask? 

 

Well Gov’na! With more residents being able to register vehicles with out Elizabeth River Tunnel’s resistance; this will significantly decrease unregistered vehicles(less crime), promote taxable income by being able to sustain hourly jobs & DMV fees, and promote economical relationships between the cities.

Governor Ralph Northam!
