What are Toll Violations?

If you’re like most people, you probably don’t know what these are. A toll violation occurs when a driver fails to pay a toll or doesn’t have the proper credentials to use the road. In some cases, drivers may try to avoid paying a toll by going around the booth or taking an unauthorized route. This can result in hefty fines and, in some instances, registration suspensions. If you’re caught driving with a suspended registration, your vehicle can be impounded, so it’s essential to know the rules before hitting the road.

If you’re planning on driving on a toll road, be sure to have the proper credentials and enough money to pay the toll. If you’re not sure whether or not you need to pay a toll, check with the authorities before you get behind the wheel.

How do I get a Toll Fine?

There are two ways that you can end up with a Toll Violation. The first is failing to pay the required toll when passing through a tolled area. The second is when drivers accidentally go through a tolled route without a valid transponder. Those who have received such violations must either pay the fine or dispute the charge.

Who is Responsible for Paying a Toll Violation?

Most of the time, the driver is responsible for paying the fees. However, there are some cases where the vehicle owner may be responsible for paying the toll violation. This usually occurs when the owner has permitted someone else to use their vehicle, and that person does not pay the toll.

What are the Consequences of not Paying?

You may get a violation notice if you don’t pay your toll. This notice will tell you how much you owe and how to pay. If you don’t pay the notice, your vehicle registration could be suspended, forcing you to appear in court. You could also end up owing more money in fines and fees.

How Can I Avoid Getting Toll Violations?

While toll violations are considered an everyday headache, there are several measures you can take to avoid unnecessary fines.

Reload Your E-ZPass: The best way is to make sure that you have enough money in your E-ZPASS account to pay the toll when you go through. 

Use a Transponder: You can also sign up for a transponder, a device that automatically deducts the toll from your account as you go through. If you use a transponder, you will need to ensure it’s appropriately mounted on your vehicle to avoid unnecessary fines or violations. 

Use non-toll routes: Lastly, you can always choose to take an alternate route that does not require passing through a toll.

While we may not always be sure where these fees originated from, we can be sure that they are a reality of modern life. While they may be annoying, remember that they are also an important source of revenue enforcement for many states and municipalities. If you do get a violation, don’t panic – TORTOLL has options available to help you dispute them without too much stress. And next time, try to remember to bring your transponder with you when you hit the road!
