Some NJ toll cheats pay up; others suspended
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - April 15, 2013 (WPVI) -- The agency that runs the Atlantic City Expressway has collected $46,000 from its biggest toll cheats and has payment plans in place to bring in another $140,000.
The surge in collections came after the South Jersey Transportation Authority gave scofflaws a choice worked out with the state Motor Vehicle Commission. They could pay up or face registration suspensions.
In August, the agency targeted about 150 individuals and companies that owed at least $200.
About half had their registrations lifted, though some have been reinstated after making payment plans.
Officials tell The Press of Atlantic City the program has been a success.
