By "piggybacking," or tailgating another car close enough to squeeze through a toll plaza before the barrier comes back down, cabbie Rodolfo Sanchez allegedly pocketed almost 30 grand in 1,061 trips over the RFK Bridge and 3,071 passes through the Queens-Midtown Tunnel. "I needed the money for my family," he said. And he was just really good at it.
