Not just tolls: E-Z Pass keeping an eye on speeders

Warning to motorists: Don’t speed in the toll lanes. E-Z Pass is watching.

Several states, including New York, Maryland and Pennsylvania, say they monitor speeds through the fast pass toll lanes and will suspend your E-Z Pass for multiple speeding violations.

In all, five of the 15 E-Z Pass states have some kind of rules on the books for breaking the speed limit in the convenience lanes.

“You can lose your E-Z Pass privileges if you speed through E-Z Pass lanes,” says Dan Weiller, director of communications for the New York State Thruway Authority. “You get a couple of warnings. We don’t have the power to give a ticket, but we do have to power to revoke your E-Z Pass, which we will.”

He and tolling officials in several other states say the issue is the safety of human toll collectors. “At most toll barriers, we have a mix of E-Z Pass lanes and standard toll lanes,” Weiller says.

    To me, it’s like the lottery. Taxation on the stupid. If Govts use this method to raise tax revenue, then it’s fine with me.

    WTF is the difference between driving 10 or 20 through a toll both?
    Is its a safety hazard? NO
    Can they still collect the toll? YES
    Its nothing but a power play of a DOUCHBAG BIG government.

  5. The article was about some states revoking EZPASS accounts for repeated speeding when using EZPASS tolls. I didn’t read of any state issuing tickets.
