Virginia's I-66 Express Lanes opened a year ago, and they're already causing major headaches for drivers in northern Virginia, CBS News reports.

According to a Virginia Department of Transportation press release, the " dynamic tolled managed lanes of 66 Express Outside the Beltway are designed to maintain average speeds of at least 55mph at all times, every day and night.

As traffic within a segment increases, toll rates increase correspondingly; as traffic abates, toll rates decrease correspondingly."

And that's not all.

Drivers in Fauquier County have been complaining about the tolling since it began, CBS reports.

According to the Virginian-Pilot, drivers there say the toll is too high and they're forced to slow down to 55mph to avoid paying the toll.

"I'm not sitting on 66."
