Maryland Drivers With Unpaid Toll Violations Are at Risk for Having Registration Suspended
Maryland Transportation Authority (MdTA) warned drivers today to pay their toll violations or their vehicle registrations will be suspended or flagged for non-renewal. There is an estimated $7.1 million in accumulated unpaid tolls in Maryland. MdTA will begin sending letters to approximately 131,000 vehicle owners, “informing them they will have their vehicle registration blocked or yanked entirely if they don’t pay what they owe in tolls and associated citations.” A majority of the toll violators lacked an E-ZPass device but went through specified E-ZPass lanes anyway. Others arrived at tolls without any money and failed to follow directions for how to pay.
Drivers can contest the toll violations and civil citations in District Court if they believe an error has been made.
