Unpaid toll bill is the biggest scam out there



$30 fricking dollars for two unpaid tolls?????

how in the hell is it my fault if the sensor didnt pick up my tag??

fricking 3rd party government contractor, and of course one of the first things at the top of the sheet is some discaimer that they are not associated with the state toll board, and dont give 2 shits if you have a tag, they're coming after you will some fricked up bill thats 10x the actual toll

that's what i would do.

do the TX toll tags use the same technology as the ones in NY/NJ/CT? i used to blow through the scan points WAY faster than you were supposed to and it still scanned every single time.

The sensors quit picking up my tag and I kept seeing the picture flash while driving through it. I called the number on the back of my tag and they sent me a new tag and took care of the tickets.

No, but it's partly my fault because half of that was failure to show at court because I forgot about it.

It's $25.00 per violation out here and it does add up: LINK

At $25 per violation times 1,056 transgressions, Jessica Jones faces a $26,400 bill.


and the perpetrator said:

It's 25 to 40 cents on the Tollway, and they're going to charge me $25 per toll? I mean, they should name the Tollway after me,"

pisses me off because I run up about $100-$120 per month in tolls as is, and my statement clearly shows when I went thru before and after the "violation" - so the sensor just didnt work for whatever reason

If you have the electronic Toll tag, all they need to do is charge your account for the toll with no fine. It's their fault. In Ny the camera takes a picture of your license plate. They run it through their computers and match thre plate number with your EZ Pass. Done

Texas has tolls?

I wasn't sure if you are in Texas or not. They have no excuse not to do it the way to say. It all sucks.
