Do you run the toll booth?

Rumor has it if you ride the white or yellow line the cameras cant pick up plates...Am I the only one that holds up traffic to take off and on leather gloves..? Has anyone received a tix in mail from ez tag?

I rode the white line a few times with a few others on the hardy toll road. Rumor has it that they now have cameras at road level to catch plates......dunno if that's true or not. I don't have a mc tx tag...if I'm alone, I'll take the feeder road or do what you do and hold up traffic as long as I want.

Get an eztag and be done with it.

Some toll roads that will not work some will. I suggest getting an ez-tag and sticking it under you seat, dont have to stop.

The busa had a side plate mounted vertically on the left rear peg that I could slide my boot over and had in the past; but only when following a group and not realizing they are running.

No you can't hide from the camera on the white line. And, Yes the camera will take pics of your LP (only if it is visible). if you lp is tucked up under the wheel and can't be seen then the camera can't take the photo of the plate and cross reference it in the system to send you ticket via the mail. If they do catch you, you can be arrested and you're bike towed (worst case scenario). My friend is the supervisor over the Pct1 Constables Office Toll Road Enforcement Division.

I wouldn't risk it. Get and EZ-Taz on your checking account and ride for 1.25.. Or hang out with me, pull off the glove, turn the head phones down, did out you change, count out change, hand to attendant, turn stereo up, put glove on, remember you need a recepit for your taxes since you heaed to a "business luncheon," get the receipt, take you glove back off, put receipt in pocket, put glove back on and drive away laughing you arce off at the people stuck behind you, giving you the finger and curse the end of the world at you!!! HA HA HA HA!!!

That's not very smart. You should NEVER do that.

It does work, never got a ticket and have also carried the ez tag, it cannot be picked up riding the line either. They are stepping up their game now and I have seen plenty of HPD patrol cars right after the toll booth waiting, not worth it for jail time.

Werd, actually just got a bit of useful info0that I didn't hear from the nice tollbooth lady. After hours when no one is on duty in the shack they have to leave the arm up for emergency vehicles. There is camera inside the booth stop at the booth pretend to look for an attendent then drive off, If they send you a fine tell them you stopped but no one was there and you needed change, they will look at the camera are you stopped and looked

I say we get a group together and all pull out change to pay. Hold up traffic for couple hours. Bikes should not have to pay same as a car. Thats just bs.
