The data provided by the DOTD, which listed detailed toll tag revenue broken down by toll tag account holder zip code from 2008 through the first 6 months of 2011, was then mapped by StopTheTolls.Org into parish totals using the zip code provided.

The resulting totals show that almost 1/2 (46%) of the toll revenue is paid by Jefferson Parish citizens. Less than 1/3 of toll revenue comes from Orleans Parish residents. Lafourche Parish residents pay about 1/12 of toll revenues.
