Speed limit to increase on Golden Gate Bridge for all-electronic toll
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- You can soon drive a little faster than you can now through the Golden Gate Bridge toll plaza.
The bridge will eliminate human toll collectors on Wednesday when it switches to an all-electronic toll sytem.
Officials plan to increase the maximum speed from 5 to 25 miles per hour.
However, drivers will still have to slow down when they get off the bridge because the speed limit on the span itself is 45 miles per hour.
