Millions In Unpaid NYS Thruway Tolls

If you travel on the New York State Thruway, there’s a basic rule: you have to pay the toll. Many of us have E-ZPass, while others pay cash. I remember years ago as a college student running out of money on my way home and asking the toll booth operator if I could “charge” the toll. That didn’t go over very well, but he let me do it. Apparently, there are a number of travelers who haven’t paid their tolls.

Here are the details, according to our sister station, WIBX:

“A new report finds there have been $35 million in unpaid tolls on the New York State Thruway between 2007 and 2011.

A review of the Thruway Authority’s finances shows $7 million of the unpaid tolls have been recouped by a collection agency, but the rest remains unpaid.

The biggest trouble spot is the Tappan Zee Bridge, where around $7 million in unpaid tolls and fines have been reported.

The authority is defending their practices, saying 99.6% of all tolls are collected.”
