Frustrated with that red light?

Just drive over it:

    Lee County[, Florida] could be the first place in the country to build an alternative to having to wait at a congested intersection.

    The idea is to allow motorists to drive over the traffic, for a small toll.

    A "queue jump," as transportation officials call it, could be featured at the intersection of Metro Parkway and Colonial Boulevard.

    It's an electronic toll overpass that would allow those with LeeWay or Sunpass transponders to go over the intersection without stopping to pay the toll.

    Drivers could be charged 20 to 40 cents, according to a study on the proposed project.
