Having Issues with Cash-Less Tolls? Here’s What NY Wants to Do
There is a new bill in the NYS Senate that passed in the assembly and the senate. It's next stop? Governor Cuomo's desk. It has to do with cashless tolling in New York and that many people are saying that they never received bills for the tolls only to receive even larger bills that include late fees and fines.
Here is a look at what the bill aims to do, from USAtoday:
- Give people who have been charged a cashless toll fee:*the option to be notified by text or e-mail within 72 hours or by mail within 14 days.
- Mandate notifications through certified mail if fees are more than $1,000 or if registrations could be suspended.
- Allow E-ZPass holders to get the E-ZPass rate even when their E-ZPass account has insufficient funds
