Update your I PASS

Hey folks, just another friendly reminder.. I got a violation notice with $100 in fines in the mail yesterday because I never updated my I PASS acct to show my new car with the new plates. I got the pictures and everything to prove it They showed 5 violations going all the way back to 2/2/04!! I updated my acct. online...called the Tollway Authority..and its cleared up. I only had to pay for 4 of the violations because apparently my transponder didnt work. One violation was a duplicate..wonder how often that happens

Soooooo... go to www.getipass.com and get your stuff updated

I'm waiting to get my letter for going through the Ipass lane on my bike. I don't think my transponder is triggering the toll.

WTF do they expect you to do if it's not working????? turn around and do it again. I use mine on my bike and it doesn't work everytime. Nor did I put my bike on it. I know too some people will bring them in other cars when they ride with friends to pay tolls. What do they care as long as they get the money???

Id have to recheck the site but I think you can add more than 1 ride to a transponder. At least if it doesnt work they trace or track your plates to see if they are registered to a transponder. Thats what the lady on the phone told me this morning. i know its a crock o' shit. They have ya coming and going. BIG BROTHER lookin in on ya

seems nuts that I had to put a $1.80 on my AMEX this morning for 4 tolls going back to Feb 2nd

Mike is correct. I've got both my bikes, my Xterra, and my gf's car all registered to the same transponder.

the idea is to go thru the booths at a high rate of speed then the camera can't catch you. Well atleast that has worked for me in the past.

Did I forget to mention my license plate fogger?


j/k


But anyway, I've been in situations where I had to blow the booths. So far I've never been caught. Luck maybe?? I dunno, I don't travel the toll way enough to get ipass. I hate the tollway - they need to get rid of all the tolls. It's total BS... Think about how much money those fackers make. You don't actually think they use that money wisely do you?

I knew that part already....I have 2 cars registered but sometimes I use it on my bike and I've used friends transponders in my car on trips. I just have a hard time believing they care when they get their .40-.50 no matter what car or bike the transponder is in when it crosses.

probably true.put your bike plates on it too

I think as long as the plates that they get a picture of are registered to an I PASS somewhere they wont hastle you<---that may be incorrect but that was what I took away from my conversation this morning

dood just add your car pay the cost of the toll and dont worry about the violation costs, you will be in the clear.

They do not care who the plates belong to, nor dot hey care who the i-pass belongs to as long as they get paid. Now, if the i-pass did not worked, those plates better be registered either under this or another i-pass.

My i-pass works 100% of the time in my G35 Coupe, but on my bike it only works maybe, and it is a BIG maybe, 10% of the time. But hey, I have 2 i-passes and all of my cars and bikes are under each of those boxes.

i just recently bought my ipass. i hear from many people that i don't need the ipass to go thru as long as i have the plates registered. but the lady i spoke to when i activated my account told me i need the transponder for it to be valid. if everyone else is right, why even carry the transponder on the bike and worry if they caught the signal?

Good point. I recently got an I-pass and Cheyenne told me that he doesn't carry his on his bike. Every so often he gets a letter in the mail saying he's in violation and he sends it back checking the box saying he has an Ipass.

I'm doing this as well, so when I get my letter I'll let you know.

Can I use I-PASS on a motorcycle?
Yes, call Customer Service at 1-800-UCI-PASS (1-800-824-7277) for details.


Can I use my I-PASS in more than one vehicle?

Yes, as long as the vehicle type is the same (e.g. Class1, 2-axle passenger vehicle). You must notify us of the license plate, make, model, color and year of the additional vehicle(s). You can do this through our Online Account Management feature or you can call 1-800-UCI-PASS. The unit must be mounted properly.

i copied this from the faq section of the ipass site. note the last sentence.

i need to experiment this myself so imma go ahead and test out the waters without the transponder.

If you have an ipass and your plates are registered with that Ipass and it does not go off at the toll you WILL get a bill in the mail and a notice of violation. YOU ARE REQUIRED TO PAY THE COST OF THE TOLL. you must send them a cashers check or money order for the cost of the toll.

IF your plates are not registered under the ipass you use and you get the violation; register your plates with that ipass transponder and then only pay the cost of the toll (not the cost of the fine + toll) and you are good to go.

it has happened to me plenty of times.

if you dont carry your transponder with you and you blow threw a toll and get pulled over for it you will be in direct violation of the law. In effect you are trying to steal money from the state on the grounds that you are trying to get away with not paying, instead of having a faulty transponder.
