This should apply to at least Houston.

via transtar (http://www.houstontranstar.org/contact/)
Traffic Signal Repair 713-802-5662

Also found these from Webster's Site (http://www1.cityofwebster.com/GIS_Tr...hts/index.html)
State Owned: 713-802-5663
County Owned: 713-881-3210

If nothing else these are likely at least starting places.

funny thing though, i find it humorous they have the eztag sensors set to pickup even the smallest vehicles yet they don't do the same for stop lights.
Riding the white line thru the toll way has kept me from getting any tickets yet. That or my license plate is tucked to far up so that they can't get a clear shot. If the light don't change ... I just go

riding the white line is a different story. if you want to jack with trying to be in between 2 lanes at beltway speeds then have fun

I have an EZTag and it never detects unless i pull it out my jacket and hold it up. Since I have put on my new LP bracket I never get charged anymore. Funny huh?

I actually have one too. The deal is I totaled my first bike and never called to have it changed. The reason I never called is because I am lazy but also because the thing never worked anyway unless even when I pulled it out of my pocket. I would still have to have the lady open the gate. So now I only take the tollway in directions were I do run into gates.

Ya I'll agree with you that beltway speeds fighting traffic probably isn't smart. I figured this out a while back when a car was trying to crowd me. Now I use my 6'2" , 185lbs to force myself a hole before I ever reach the toll area. Again not smart(not recommending this) but its seems to work.

Not too mention they will consider your new bike a new vehicle and charge you another $15 for a new tag.

This used to happen to me way too much in Sugarland going home from my friends house. I would just wait and then run it.

Cops *can* ticket you for this, supposedly, but really they'd have to be a pretty big to do so.

Yep I went and added my new truck last month. Not thinking at the time to cancel the tag on my old truck. Since I had more than 3 tags (my 2 trucks, bike, wifes car) they took my recharge rate up to $80 instead of $40.
