It seems everytime we travel out of PA to Delaware or New Jersey with our EZ-Pass we get citations from both states for a non-working EZ Pass. Yet on the same trip our EZ Pass works just fine on the PA Turnpike. Furthermore, on our last trip to Delaware, the EZ Pass worked going South through the toll plazas yet on the return trip through the same toll plaza we received a citation for a violation of non-toll payment.
I sent my statements from my EZ pass account showing ample monies in both my tag accounts yet that didn’t satisfy Deleware. My attorney also sent two letters with documentation validating my claim that the EZ pass had ample funds. Still did not satisfy Delaware so they turned it over to a collection agency. This put my Attorney into high gear and he went after them guns blazing. They finally backed off the claim but never apologized or even sent any word of the claim being dismissed.
This year we traveled to Delaware and NJ and bingo, same deal. I won’t answer the claim this time, I just simply turned it over to my Attorney and let him deal with these crooks. I often wonder how many folks just pay the fine to eliminate the hassle. Sorry, that’s not in my DNA. When I’m right I’ll break the gates of hell to prove it.
Beware of your EZ passes in these two states. Make sure you audit your EZ pass statements.
