Regional semantics.  Colorado won't let you renew your registration after
toll violations, Oklahoma makes you pay the toll and asseses steep fines,
plus 3 points on your license for skipping toll: If you drive to Joplin
from OKC with a clean license and take the Turner, Creek and Rogers
turnpikes and don't pay toll, you won't have a driver's license before you
even reach the state line, and it'll take a few months for enough points to
expire to get it back!
