toll violation

Just wondering.

if you missed a toll 3 years ago.... in theory, is it suppose to be cleared from your record?

Have to deal with toll violation because my g/f used my ride luckily shes got I-pass.

Because how can they say it is a violation without your knowledge of when it happened? Could have been mechanical failure on their part

Is there a statute of limitations for toll violations?
No. Under the common law, the statute of limitations does not apply where the State asserts a civil action involving a public right.

An acquaintance recently bought one of those license plate sprays that's supposed to prevent the plate from being photographed with toll/red light cameras... Somehow I don't think he'll get his money's worth...

The toll I missed 3 years ago..... i paid the 40 cents online eventhough it was 6 months past.

I said, why cant you apply that to my toll from 3 years ago. System isn't designed for that. You want a refund of 40 cents?

g/f tells me after I receive my violation letter that she went in the wrong lane twice

The Tollway recognizes that honest mistakes happen—we allow 2 mistakes in a 24-month period.
guess 1 mistake in 12 months is too hard to ask.

I just got a violation notice in the mail today for missing 5 tolls even though I had my iPass with me on the bike. And my bike plates are registered with that transponder. Total is $104.10. One of the "violations" was from 2 years ago too. Unreal.

I swear the tollway people need a slap. I'm calling them on Friday. If I have to, I'll call Law Tigers too ... I'm so f'in sick of them.

Is the bike plate registered as a bike or a car?

In your ill tollway profile, does your bike appear as below?

MCYxxxxxx IL Motorcycle (150cc and above) {MAKE} {MODEL}

Where xxxxxx is your plate # and make/model are the obvious?

iPass people are a bunch of tools.

They have their own arbitration system that's basically run and maintained by THEM!

It's like wolves asking wolves if the sheep are friends or dinner.

I'm glad my g/f had I pass, otherwise id be fawked. Eventhough, it was all her fault.

If g/f didn't exist, no violation.



I'm sure I pass court would be just like my parking ticket court. Your wrong no matter what.


"well, you went through the I pass lane, instead of the mechanical booth........ pay attention how you drive, not our fault, FINE 40 DOLLARS."

"but I have proof I paid the other 5 tolls and I just missed this one"

"your still guilty, so sowwy"

That is exactly how it is registered.

Apparently the people who run iPass never learned how to play connect-the-dots as a kid.

the I pass system sucks, i got charged something like 140 bucks because I-88 was under construction and i accidentally went through the I pass lane without an I pass, when i called to explain they said that even if my car was stolen and someone blew through the toll im responsible. the 'open road tolling' was blago's idea hmmm i wonder why its corrupt?????

I spent 30% of my money on fast cars, 30% on women, and 30% on booze. The other 10% I wasted.

FYI ... I called iPass to fix this. They found the error and cleared the violations.

They did say though that the license plate # for motorcycles should not begin with the "MCY" that appears on your registration. Interestingly enough when this happened to me last time, they told me it SHOULD begin with MCY. So you can't win. I guess getting these things in the mail is just gonna be "normal operating procedure" for people with motorcycles.

Interesting................ Very interesting......

I've yet to receive any violation notices for the past 2 years for the bike. At the same time, I rarely if ever take the transponder with me.

Way back when I did get a violation notice (2004?), I called in, and they said the plate was of the wrong type in my profile, and corrected it.

I recall that with the new website, when you add a plate, there's a separate drop down to indicate the plate type. Oh well, time will tell. My info is current, and there is a valid credit card # on file. If they can't get their system in order, too bad.

Now that Rod is gone, we won't have these problems.

And Tales, stop towing your house through the ipass lanes and you will be ok.

I can verify that experience. The innocent explanation is that they changed their database of plate numbers to keep track of it differently, so the rules really did change between the two violation notices.

Now, that doesn't explain why they didn't do a proper data conversion between systems. Based on how often they warn their users to check their accounts and make sure all plates are registered, I guess they figure it's your job to monitor their records for them.

Agreed ... some sloppy/lazy work on the state's part ... but I guess we should expect this
