Plus, they also get taxed. As for the other thousands of people standing by and doing nothing, you're literally told at the gates that the gangs RUN the Mix, and they do, in every sense of the word. The nameless NPCs don't rebel or do anything against it because again, they're faceless peons just trying to survive.
Don't wanna get taxed? Find a way not to. That's the whole point of the game. In my eyes, taxing people creates opportunities for good RP.
Still new here, but I'consider tolls as more of a price of doing business instead of a shakedown/mugging.
PC's are the movers and the shakers. Ambient pop are the workers and the consumers. They are already spending their flash on the ganger's turf. There's no reason to toll them. But the Playas that are on ganger turf making mad stacks? Those chummers are the ones that need to pay up. PC's should see it as a compliment??
