Firefighters forced to pay toll

Posted: Updated:
Rhode Island (KWWL) -

Emergency crews would like to cross the bridge when they come to it, but they're being told to pay up first.

So what happens if they don't have change during an emergency?

Recently, Jamestown, Rhode Island firefighters were heading back to their station after a fire when they went to cross a bridge.

They weren't allowed to cross because they forgot to bring cash to pay the toll.

The group that runs the bridge says all emergency responders, including police, pay a toll.

The only exception is when first responders are dealing with an incident on the bridge or its ramps.
