Interesting Ipass information...

This may be old info and you all know about it but I'll share anyway just incase everyone doesn't know. I just got off the phone with the folks at Ipass because the blue light isn't going on all the time when I'm on my bike. The lady (very nice woman) said that I should try different spots. She said not to worry about getting a violation notice because the Toll Authority now does V-tolling. That's where they check your plates if you blow a toll and see if you have an active Ipass. If you do they'll just charge the Ipass account and not send you a violation notice.

Useful info for us riders where Ipasses aren't always in the best spots on our bikes.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Also, take away from that meaning they probably have some automated way (or at least more efficient process if still using humans) to read your plates so don't go blowing the booths if you don't have an iPass

Yeah, that's what I am doing. I'll just have it on me and if the blue light doesn't go on I'm covered since my bike's been registered.

I just carry it in my pocket in case I get stuck at one of the ancient tolls that still has gates, otherwise I don't even take it out and blow right through.

About the V-tolling... I hear it's good for only 5 times in a month

Fast_Beemer, any more info on this?

I usually have it inside my tank bag and it's picked up the signal all the time

Just curious... This thread was back in April... Any of you received anything from I-Pass / Toll Authority since? (Cheyenne, JimZX9r, Jammin ?)

I've recently returned to the Chicago area, now use I-Pass, and was curious if anyone had received violations by now, or if they really do just charge it and move on... Anyone had experience with a limit on how many times?

I carry mine in a chest pocket, but noticed the light didn't go on this AM.

Please to chime in with any updates. This is a great thread.

Thanks.

I have Hunny reach back and cover the plate with her hands or I throw some duct tape on the plate right before getting on which sticks nicely on the windscreen the rest of the time.

Love it!

Not to steal the thread, but...

Bought it about 8 wks ago. Got approx 1100 - 1200 miles on it now.

Absolutely awesome. Perfect choice for me.


Thanks all for the iPass info. Now I won't sweat it so much.
