If two bikes ride along side one another at the change lane, both bikes can ride through for the price of 1.

what this does is that only 1 person need to take off their gloves, and then at the next booth it's the other rider's turn.

if you get caught you just say that you put 3 dollars in it at once. I bet the cop wouldn't go and check, heh heh.

Go to jail for running the toll both? I love the scare tactics.

What is that charge if I may ask? What is the charge that is worthy of going to jail.

I avoid toll roads altogether or take the service road. Getting an EZ Tag is prob the easiest way. Leave in your trunk and if it picks up, it picks up, if not, then you got a free ride.

I can believe they might arrest you for crazy amount of outstanding tolls. However, arresting me for running the ez tag lane??? Y'all can sell that to someone else, cuz I dont buy that.

I wish they would arrest me for not paying a toll. We just paid a fat lady 27k for tripping on a sidewalk and breaking her ankle. Wonder what I could get for going to jail for not paying a toll.

doubt they are gonna arrest you for running 1 tag, but it does give them a reason to pull you over and go from there........

yup. And that's what I was trying to get at. You wont go to jail for running a toll, BUT, you just might get pulled over and go to jail for something as a result of that.

Why is that? Are we not always arguing that we are entitled to our piece of the road? If you choose to ride on the tollway...you have to pay the toll.

non running sv650 :(









i got busted one time (cuz i'm fookin stuipd and knew he was there)
it was a 100dollar ticket but this was like 5yrs ago

if u notice all the plazas have cameras hanging but all the small booths don't

they have the hanger from the ceiling but no camera attached

plus only squids keep their plate that visible

bikers shouldn't have to pay for tolls

i pay em in my car not the bike.

+eleventy-one billion.
I also just stop, pull my glove off, but dig in my pocket for my wallet and pull out my Military ID and show the attendant. Wait 3 seconds till they actually look and realize what it is, then they grab a clip board, hand it to me and I fill out Unit and Vehicle then realize that I forgot my watch and ask the attendant what time it is. Since my ear plugs are in and my helmet is on I have to yell "What?" and then get the time and enter it on the last line. Then say "have a nice day", put my wallet back in my pocket, put my gloves back on and creep forward so they can enter my LP on the clipboard then cruise away for free!
