paying for tolls in the Keys

From driving from Fort Lauderdale to Key west whole way.

Would one have to pay tolls on each of the bridges connecting the islands each one of them?

or is only pay tolls prior at turnpike on mainland

while the main tool booths are on the mainland, north of Florida City, there is one more toll booth, should you decide (or be forced to detour to it) to take Card Sound Road, just past Alabama Jack's.

I can't see, from my photograph of the toll booth, what the toll is. Maybe $1?

I guess they will let drivers heading south know if there's an accident on the main highway and flash the lights on the Card Sound Road sign to let you know it's a good idea to take the longer route, but I've never seen the lights flashing.

What you need to be concerned with are the cashless tolls in the Miami area of the Florida Turnpike. You cannot pay with cash but have to use the automatic toll paying feature in the rental car. The rental companies charge a fee on top of the toll for using the automatic pay feature. Some of them charge this fee every day of the rental even if the car is parked at your destination. Others charge the fee only on days you go through a toll.

See this website for those charges: www.sunpass.com/rentalcar

if theres an accident on the stretch, the card sound toll is waved. There will usually be troupers to direct you. otherwise, it's a dollar and the sun pass is not honored there.
