Thruway tolling system also screwing drivers
From Eyewitness News:
A local lawmaker is demanding an overhaul of the way tolls are collected along the New York State Thruway.
State Senator David Carlucci hosted a forum Wednesday in Nanuet where drivers told how they unknowingly racked up thousands of dollars in fines.
Most of the complaints stem from the cashless toll system implemented at the Tappan Zee Bridge. Under the system, drivers without EZ Pass are supposed to be billed by mail. But many motorists say they never received the bills but did get letters only after steep fines were imposed for unpaid tolls.
Drivers who do not pay can have their registration suspended.
