The NJ Department of Transportation is cracking down on toll cheats. Now, let's be honest. We've all missed a toll or two by accident, but now they've beefed up cameras and they are handing out fines. Speaking from experience, I took my EZ Pass tag from one car to another and forgot to put it back in the car I took it from. I travel the Parkway everyday and use the EZ Pass express lanes all the time. It dawned on me the other day that I didn't have my tag in my car and I had been cruising through the lanes and not paying the tolls. Like clockwork, the fines found their way to my mailbox. After working it out with customer service, I was able to pay the tolls I missed and avoid the fine.
From EZ Pass's FAQ's:
What if my E-ZPass tag fails to work?

Call the E-ZPass Customer Service Center as soon as possible.

And if you're not paying tolls...start! It's not worth the fines and the NJDOP is watching...
