Being for a bike you should have gotten the bigger one that is a little bigger than an iphone. If that is the case, yes it can go in the trunk of the bike.

on the truck??

do you mean in the trunk? like in the tail? If so, I've heard many people put it in the tail without issues. But get ready for to tell you to ride the line and not worry about it.

I keep mine in the tail. It opens the gates when I stop though sometimes it doesn't get picked up in the EZ Tag lane

No matter what the computers will trace your plate to a tag. You will be ok.

I keep my block in my jacket or tail of bike. I wish you could use the block with multiple bikes.

you place both your wheels on the solid white line that divides the ez tag lanes while going under the ez tag scanners.

it's a very simple technique that i have a lot of experience with . when you spot a LEO near you, don't fret! it's simple, just pretend you are changing lanes and time it so when you change lanes you end up with both wheels on the white line as you are going under the scanners.

don't take my word for it though, i'm sure they are billing me sooner or later for those many many many tolls i've gone through

I'm sure if you do a search you'll find a post where a rider was almost arrested for this. HCTRA wanted HPD to arrest him but he mentioned to the cop that he was on this forum and they told him if he posted a warning about it they would only give him a ticket.

That method works, but I'm going to start using an actual exit, so I'm gonna have to get an EZ tag. It was fun (and free) while it lasted.

I have a black windscreen, if I stick it inside, I'm sure it will still read it right? I assume since it reads when they're in the trunk. If it ends up being peeled off, does it become inactive?

The block for motorcycles is a transmitter, so it'll work pretty much anywhere. A dark windshield won't affect it. You can Velcro it to the windscreen, then put it in the trunk when you're not riding. I would suggest Dual-Lock by 3M over Velcro. Much stronger. You can get it at radio shack.

No, each tag is assigned to a specific license plate.
I had an EZ tag with my old bike, then stuck it in my jacket when I bought the second bike and the sensors didn't pick it up. Previous owner got a nasty-gram from HCTRA saying he owed $360 in unpaid tolls and fines. Then he called me off and I apologized and got the new bike it's own EZ Tag.

Btw, yeah use the lane change story on the cop, I'm sure they've never heard that one before.

Also, if you're using it at a gated entrance or exit, make sure where you place it will be good enough for the individual sensor to pick up.

The gates at a specific entrance I take NEVER picks it up while the sensor at an exit I take ALWAYS picks it up.

Don't worry about the running toll plazas. If the sensor doesn't read it should just read your plates.

i've heard of people getting the bulky transmitter one, putting it in their trunk, and still riding the line to not get charged. at least then if you get pulled over, you can tell the cop you have one and it's not your fault it didn't pick you up. at least you'll look legit, which is always a good start when dealin with leos. i've never done this before though
