Not all EZ tag lanes are the same. Some lanes will take your picture when the motion sensors(mounted on the side walls) pick you up.

thats how i thought ALL ez tags were; motion sensored. how do you avoid from getting caught if you run one of those and they always get your pic?

i saw it on tv once. i think it was more like 160. i believe a 750 or 1000 can do. maybe some 600 too. hahah but i run it all the time when i go. from 45north to bellaire, i just run the line. but for some reason a couple of my buddies dont even run the line but never got a ticket. i see them going through it normally like other cars but they dont even own a ez tag.
tax, ss, and medicare that are taken off every paycheck is alot already. im not gonna pay the gov anything else when theres a way to go w/out so.
