Exclamation Ez pass fast lane WATCH OUT

For years you could trailer with your ez pass and not get charged for the trailer. NOT ANY MORE!! I am not sure if this means that you no longer have to call them up to make changes when towing or not. Also be aware that if you have roof racks on your truck and or car that they are saying that these trick the sensors into thinking that you have a trailer behind you

don.t laugh at me but with the states now using photo radar and sending you a ticket in the mail I would suspect in the fast lanes they can also clock how fast you are going use the IPASS to know who you are and..................

Yep, I know someone (who shall remain nameless ) who got a letter in the mail asking them to not tow a trailer through the ezpass lanes going 67 mph.

I just towed my boat from VA to NY about 3 weeks ago. The first 3 tow booths that I came to, I stopped and asked if there was an additional charge and they just waved me on and said no. After that I didn't even slow down.

I always roll through the Chesapeake Bay Brigde and it shows up on my statement as just a car.

Do they have a website?

Nope no story YET. I just saw a new artical on it last night. I know that I have always thought it was one of those things that they were going to work out but had not yet. Well I guess that they have figured out a way to do it..... ALMOST

As for the speeding tickets with Fast lane. I have heard that also but I highly doubt that they will start to do that. This is a way for the state to save a TON of money. If they started to do that you would see a lot of people hand them back in I would think. Secondly you go through tolls so fast that you can actually drive slower and arrive at the same time. I have had people blow past me and then I go past them as they waite in the toll lines. I never see them again. NY is the only state that you can register your dually as a car so I got mine there. It saves me HUGE on tolls. In Maine with out the fast lane it is 4.40 for me to go through, with it only 1.75 each time. Can you say LOOP HOLE

I think that their website is www.ezpass.com and you just pick your state?

Jon

I've beat the NJTP and GW bridge in NY while towing. The Delaware Memorial Bridge is a differemt story . My SRW F350 is normally $3.00 toll , with tandem axle trailer $6.00. Twice , for some reason they charged me $12.00. I fought it and got a refund.

Think about it - 5 toll booths through Illinois. I80 to Wisconsin. They know exactly what time you go through the booths and how far apart they are. NOBODY does anything les than 10 over on 294 when there's no traffic. If you ain't doing 75, you are getting run over!
Gotta wonder when they'll start issuing tickets through the system? Probably when they have a big budget shortfall.
