Talk about annoying! About maybe 15 years ago, a highway was built in my area called the 407. It was decided to make it a toll road and sell a contract to a European company to maintain it and collect the tolls. They were given a 99 year lease! Tolls have gone up and up as they gouge users. The government tried to make them lower this toll or at least stop increasing it. The court found that for 99 years the company can do what it wants due to the contract signed. It now costs about 40 cents a kilometre to use it!
