EZ tag question

I finally got my ez tags for the 2 trucks and the bike. Isn't the one for the bike supposed to be different? Also, I cant find any info on placement. It just says on windshield, next to the rear view mirror.

I just threw it in my trunk. Will it work there? If I get pulled over because it doesnt register, will a cop give me about it being in my trunk?

The EZ tag for bikes is not the sticker tag style, but a thick plastic box style. I put it under the seat and it works most of the time.

They sent me a sticker. It is linked to the bike's plate number.

Yea, but it's not going to open a gate at a exit. Motorcycles are supposed to have the plastic transponder

You need to either stick it inside a fairing that will stay "mostly" dry or call and request the box. I put the box in my breast pocket of my jacket and it works fine.

FWIW I suppose if your helmet has no carbonfiber I assume you could stick it inside uner the foam also....?

No. Because many motorcycles do not have windshields and because the stickers can not withstand elements like wind and rain, motorcycles must continue to use the special hard case tag.

The bike should have a box as stated above. If its not detected the cameras will match your plate and you will be good.

I have been planning on getting an EZ tag for my bike. So it is a sticker? Where the heck to I put a sticker on a naked bike? I don't want to spend the money for something that is useless. Any other comments out there please?

No it's not a sticker. Read the entire thread.

What are you basing this on?
The cameras cover the entire area of the toll lanes. Riding the line will not avoid detection and may get you a nasty fine.

To the OP just contact the HCTRA and discuss it with them. They will probably just tell you to being back the sticker and get a proper ex tag for a bike.

Got it from Austin.

Houston is the only one that rips you off by charging you for the tag. If you get it through Austin or Dallas, they are free.

The camera does cover the entire lane, but I think it's still triggered by the sensors on the ground.

This doesn't change that if you white line you may still get charged and probably pulled over for a nasty fine. I've done it. Thousands of people have done it. Some get caught and yelled at some don't.


For the record I now have an ez tag. A brick I put in my trunk.
