A few months ago I rode the line and didn't get a ticket... so maybe riding the line works? My plate was tucked, though, so that could've been why.

Same thing for me but I had a stock fender and I rode the far left line.

I rode the westpark tollway on sunday with a buddy of mine who rides it all the time. He claims that riding the middle of the lane (when there are two lanes of course) will bypass the sensors. So we went through a couple of them. I'll let ya know if I get any bills in the mail.

On another note, i rode the far right line of the toll ramp from beltway8 to 249N and haven't received anything from that one.

The HCTRA is a client of mine and I asked one of them about it apparently the westpark, Fortbend, and I-10 toll sensors are one solid strip all the way across not like the ones used for the beltway.

I commute on the westpark and beltway 8. I have an easy tag for my bike but only use it when a cop’s nearby. On the westpark use the centerline and you’re invisible. On the beltway ride the white line between the easy tag lanes. It works, it’s free, get caught, it’s expensive.

No way. You can see them hanging. The square white boxes angled slightly towards the driver.

If you go through them over 100mph, their cameras can't detect you

"ride the YELLOW line on the left side...I ride Westpark everyday to work...."

True you can ride any line on the westpark.

just don't whine if you get popped by the LEO for a $200 fine.

if anything get a tag for the bike and do as you will. if you get pulled over your legal.

Shennanigans....MythBusters showed us that those cameras catch everything no matter how fast.

mkay? Thanks!
Stick the ez-tag on the front/top side of your helmet. May provide additional downforce on you and the bike, and you'll get a good reading everytime!
