In August of 1988 the power ballad “Don’t Know What You Got (Till It’s Gone)” by the rock band Cinderella was released.

One a sappy song by an 80s hair band, the other, the beginning of a 20-year long run of toll collecting between Sandy Springs and Buckhead. With the announcement last week from the State Road and Tollway Authority that the Ga. 400 toll would go away for good this November, the pessimist in me thinks, at least in the short term, we might miss it.
