Toll booth spits out coins, rather than accepting them

MULVANE, Kan. (AP) Usually when you arrive at a toll booth, you deposit money and go on your way.

But in Mulvane, Kan., the other day, some drivers ended up collecting money from a toll booth, instead.

It happened along the Kansas Turnpike at a toll greeting drivers at the Mulvane exit.

Instead of accepting money, the machine spat out coins.

The state agency ended up disclosing the mishap in a text alert to public subscribers.

The information was to be an internal message but, like the coins at the toll machine, it was distributed incorrectly.

The note said there’s “no way” to know how much money the faulty machine dispensed.
