Stopping traffic to collect "tolls" is a frequent occurrence here. When there are potholes and guys fill them in with gravel, they want a toll. If a tree is down and it needs moved for traffic to continue, they
want a toll. Unfortunately, sometimes it is these same guys who have diverted water in order to create these potholes, or have put the tree on the road in a way to collect money. We typically aren't made to pay these "tolls" since we are missionaries who work at the hospital. When they don't know who we are, we tell them and then they let us go.
So we got by without paying the 2 Kina toll, but saw other cars who did pay the toll, being a missionary does have some advantages.
