Toll violation?

I just got a letter saying that I have 3 toll violations on I10 going east. I thought the managed lanes were HOV lanes from 2-8??

Yes on the bike.

I read that too on the sign they have before the entrance that's why I'm surprised.

HCTRA does not make mistakes, they harass people and waste their time with a unique combination of stupidity and incompetence.

If you are on a motorcycle and are riding through during the free HOV hours, you must ride in the left most lane closest to the booths. At these times, only the left lane is free, right lane is ONLY for those with an EZ Tag.

If you are riding in the right lane at ANY time, you MUST have an EZ Tag.

I've gotten this too before.

I just didn't pay and they sent me a letter saying I'm banned from using toll roads.

Which is fine with me, because I don't ever take them.

That's interesting. Usually they send it to a law firm that tacks on additional charges. After so many days (90 I think), they send a letter letting you know that your vehicle registration will not be renewed until all charges are paid.

At least that's what has happened to the people I know.

It's been well over 90 days and they threatened me with that one, but I got my registration done about 3 or 4 months after this happened.
