    Ha! That's from "The Godfather," when Sonny failed to inherit the family business, because a rival family gave him the business first!

    And the first tolling system to use the electronic "Good To Go" system in Washington State, so there are through lanes that bypass the tolling plaza on the opposite side of the plaza, with a gantry that reads the G2G RFID chip and license plate readers that correlate it with the vehicle it's assigned to.
