Atlantic City Expressway Toll Cheats Targeted
Already targeted on the New Jersey Turnpike & Garden State Parkway, motorists who repeatedly cheat the tolls on the Atlantic City Expressway are now in the crosshairs.
This week the South Jersey Transportation Authority will send a list of 150 individuals and companies that owe more than $200 in unpaid tolls to the state Motor Vehicle Commission.
Offenders will have 25 days to pay up or have their vehicle registrations suspended. The rule only applies to in-state drivers.
A similar program has already been adopted by the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway.
Records reviewed by The Press of Atlantic City show that one company had 6,650 violations totaling more than $51,000. The newspaper says Tropiano Transportation Services has said E-ZPass transponders weren't working correctly in its vehicles.
