Port Authority Increases Fine For Entering EZ-Pass Booth Without Tag

My latest statement from NY’s EZ-Pass program included a notice indicating that, effective November 15, 2009, the fine for passing through an EZ-Pass booth at a Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (PATH) crossing without an EZ-Pass tag is increased to $50.

Not a terribly exciting piece of news, but awareness is key. The increase represents a doubling of the toll evasion fine for Port Authority crossings. This is the notice that came with this month’s EZ-Pass statement: PATH Toll Violation Fee Effective 11-15-2009.
