During vacation times, it is common for several Colombian families go to enjoy their rest to other cities in the country and that these trips are made by road.
(See: The requests of tourism in Colombia to consolidate the reactivation).
However, beyond enjoyment, car trips in Colombia have their ‘buts’: one of them is that the country is one of those in Latin America with the highest number of tolls, with about 180 (174 in total).
Of these, 147 are administered by the National Infrastructure Agency (ANI) and for him National Institute of Roads (Invías). The other 34 are managed by the district, departmental or municipal governments, as appropriate.
Take into account that the tolls have as financial functionality the maintenance and repair of roads. However, its cost is the center of criticism.
