Vidya Sagar who said it was illegal to collect the toll fee under the guise of raising additional sources for the development of highways without providing an alternative road Mr Shashi Kiran, counsel for the petitioners, stated that apart from the life tax on the vehicle, governments were compelling motorists to use tolled highways and pay a huge toll fee.
