NJ Officials Move Forward on Toll Cheat Crackdown

Highway officials in New Jersey are moving forward with their crackdown on chronic toll cheats.

The New Jersey Turnpike Authority agreed Wednesday to pay the state Motor Vehicles Commission up to $35,000 to process vehicle registration suspensions for drivers who owe more than $1,000 in unpaid tolls and fees. It comes just weeks after the authority posted the names of its top toll violators on its website.

Officials say 130 companies and individuals — who owe about $2.5 million overall — were targeted under a pilot program launched last month. Violators received letters warning them that their registrations would be suspended if they didn’t pay what they owe or make other settlement arrangements.

Thirty-one violators have since made some payments. But letters sent to another 18 came back as undeliverable.
