New Jersey toll enforcement nets $3.2 million
WOODBRIDGE TOWNSHIP (WABC) -- Highway officials in New Jersey are cashing in on their crackdown on chronic toll cheats.
New Jersey Turnpike Authority officials announced Tuesday that stepped-up toll enforcement efforts have resulted in an additional $3.2 million in revenue.
The Asbury Park Press reports exact-change lane violations on the Garden State Parkway have been reduced by 50 percent. Meanwhile, authority officials say 35 percent of the 150 drivers who face suspension of their vehicle registration privileges for unpaid tolls have contacted the authority to settle up.
The authority, which also runs the parkway, has collected more administrative fees in the first eight months of the enforcement program. And it has seen a record number of customers buy E-ZPass tags.
