Tuscarora members want to collect tolls on reservation highways
Two members of the Tuscarora Nation of New York want to collect tolls on motorists who use highways on the reservation.

Nicholas Patterson and Adrian Bigfoot set up a booth on Route 31 on Wednesday. No tolls were collected but they want to send a message to the state.

"They wanna tax us, you know what I mean? I think it's time we tax them. It's vice versa, it can work both ways," Patterson told WIVB-TV.

Patterson and Bigfoot say they will be on the highway until the state drops its effort to impose tobacco taxes on reservations.
