Pretty much every S (provincial) and G (national) expressway in China is a toll road (the only exception that I can think of is the S20 Outer Ring Expressway here in Shanghai, which does not have a toll) so I'm used to it. I don't think there's a problem with road tolls, though the Chinese implementation of toll plazas strikes me as being extremely inefficient, where even cars with ETC (electronic toll payment) have to slow to 20km/h to pass through the toll gates, and often get stuck in the traffic jams that form at very busy toll gates in the system. Other countries do electronic tolls SO much better than China does.
