Need help with E-ZPass problems?
Legislation was introduced earlier this year to address the ongoing problem of poor notice and hefty fines for toll violations. For example, if a commuter drives daily on the ICC but one day their transponder malfunctions, that person is unaware of this problem until they suddenly receive a bundle of 20-something violation notices, all at once, and with a $50 fine for each in addition to the basic toll costs. Drivers can easily rack up more than $1,000 in civil penalties before they receive any notice. In 2015, approximately 890,000 ICC toll violations were issued, and the courts have been overwhelmed by challenges. While this year’s legislation was unsuccessful, please contact us if you’re facing a problem like this, and we will advocate on your behalf for a fair resolution.
