Changes for Courtesy Patrol on Turnpike

Bad news for drivers who break down on the West Virginia Turnpike during the day. You had better hope a fellow traveler or a police officer stops to help. That's because the Courtesy Patrol will no longer be there.

The road's governing board voted Thursday to eliminate the Courtesy Patrol's 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. shift. Leaders say the move is an effort to reduce costs.

Authority member David Dickirson opposes the decision. He says turnpike travelers pay to use the road and they expect more service.
