Big Truck Slams Into Tool Booth At Orotina On Friday (Photos)

We’ve all been witness, big rigs ramming through the toll stations on the Ruta 27 The practice is so common Globalvia, the concessionaire of the Autopista del Sol has erected a secondary drop gate, higher than the first one, automatically activated to drop down on the windshield of a big rig that crashes the first.

In a personal experience, paying the toll in the adjacent booth at Cuidad Colon, the attendant started shouting obscenities – in a really passionate way – at the truck that had just crashed the gate, evading the toll.

When asked, she told me it is a daily occurrence on the exclusive quick pass lane, multiple times a day in fact.

The Orotina tolls are the worst fo gate crashing to avoid paying the toll. There Globalvia has set up the secondary barriers on all toll lanes. Notice the orange boxs in the photo.

But, in some cases like on Friday, the crashing is more than just the barrier. The incident occurred at 1:10 p.m. at the Pozón toll in Orotina. The big rig crashed into the toll booth itself, a man was hit several times.
