I attended a meeting conducted by the previous DV superintendent, Ed Rothfuss. One of the subjects discussed was the collection of fees. He admitted that collecting fees on highway thru DV was probably illegal since the road was a California public road, not a toll road. Thus the travelers would be requested to make a donation for the betterment of DV. Once the parkies started collecting the fee, they have become very beligerent and say that it is the law. Well it is not the law unless the state of California has designated the road a a toll road.
