I live in California Terrance and there is no way to get into my community without paying a toll during these times. It is extremely frustrating when I have to pay a toll just to get home which happened this morning. I do not supporting closing these roads down for the people in multiple communities that live on this street to get out. The city needs to reimburse the citizens in this case because it is unjust.
