Bad Moon Rising or Teh Tollway Blues

The saga of the Indiana Road-trip/Crap-tastic Weekend continues…or is it a Bad Moon Rising??

I got a Notice of Toll Violation from the IL Tollway today.  They said it was a failure to pay for tolls from April 9-12, but we have our IPass Transponder installed in the window in plain view.

One can not tell from the new sensors they’ve installed along the IL tollway, if the transponder is working or not, you can’t see any flashing lights like before, when you’re driving through three lanes doing the speed limit-they have them all set up above you when you pass under them, and the toll lanes are like a 3 lane open Highway now, not like before when you had to jockey into position to get in the fast lane, and slooooooooow doooooooooown real slow so you didn’t crash into the concrete dividers or each other.

So, I went online and checked my IPass account and looked up all activity for the month of April-they had no record of  transactions, which means my transponder is dead. This means I now have to turn it in for  a new one, which I do not want or need-we haven’t used it in over 2 years.

I hope they can take back the transponder and reverse all those fines and refund us or apply our balance toward the fees owed. The total came to $7.30 for 8 toll charges, then they charged $20 per each x 8 for a grand total of $167.30!!!

I have to call their 1-8oo # on Monday and hope to get this straightened out with little trouble….updates to follow….
