Reader says NJ Ez pass is a scam

1018EZPass

NJ Ez pass is a scam. My personal experience (I have ny account take was issued before nj had the ezpass ). My account has always been in good standing, automatic credit card reimbursement, etc. I have 4 current tags. I put a tag in my newly obtained vehicle with out of state plates while it was here for a month. The garden state parkway toll in wash twps said “tag not read”. To avoid issues, that plate was added to the account 15 minutes later. I received a violation notice (despite meeting all the criteria for NOT being a violation) demanding 1.50 toll and $50 administration fee. I replied as requested online, on the phone, and using their automated system 11 times. They kept sending their lying bs notice. I finally had the last clerk on the phone admit that “their new system was having problems “. I paid the 1.50 toll with a credit card, and made it clear if she tried to ding me the 50 I would dispute the charge and suggest that the local us attorney investigate their practices. Apparently that is how NJ tries to strong arm payments that ate NOT due from unsuspecting motorists who think they may have a registration revoked (it’s not possible ). NJ EZ pass is a corrupt organization (based on my personal experience) and should be investigated. If it was a private company the executives would be indicted for mail fraud wire fraud and corruption for extorting money from motorists that is not due.

  1. My experience was totally the opposite. I started by talking to a person so maybe the machines are what is programmed incorrectly. My old tag could not be read by the overhead vendors. I received the full turnpike fee two separate times and both times she corrected it. If you think our system is bad go to a state or town with intersection cameras. We were sent a perfect view of our grandson’s jeep, the license plate and his face as well as the red light he went through as it changed to yellow.

  3. That’s why I have a dash cam with gps. My speed is accurate, if some jerk with road rage causes an accident, or if some jaywalker jumps in front of my car I can prove I was right.
    For $250 bucks it’s worth it.
    I’m the original poster. NJ ex pass is corrupt. No violation from the tappan zee bridge or Delaware bridge. Just the state of new jerkey. My equipment was not the problem and my account was current and compliant and the other agencies got their $ as per my statement.
