This goes back to the whole Fed's about income tax being only temporary back in da day! Like the 30's or 40's, can which... It's a F-in scam... they want the money to pay for we pay taxes and MVR and MVI's for...

As for arresting you for not paying a toll, yup sorry. If there is a city ordinace or county ordinance that say you have to pay the toll/fine then it's a legimate arrestable offense according to state law!

i cut my tolls in half with white lining daily on the beltway. Can't do it in my car :-( I have a motorcycle tag, but never had an issue with whitelining. Tolls went up once back in the car.

what's the difference between an ez tag and tx tag? My understanding is that the TX tag can be used in the other major texas cities with toll roads, which to me would be better to get than an ez tag. Right?

I have probably only payed 5-6 tolls on my bike in almost a year of regular toll road riding. I have an eztag under the seat and I don't even bother to white line it.

I have an ez tag for my bike that I keep in my pocket and ride the white and I'm never charged. If I hit a sensor they'd put it on my ez-tag after they check the plate.

I got a ticket for riding the white a few years ago and that got dismissed once I got ez-tag and brought proof to court.

I work for a company contracted to maintain the cameras and servers for HCTRA. If I didn't work for them I'd probably still white line but I like my job too much . I check the cameras daily and see some guys coming off the white line hitting the sensors and still getting caught.

also the guys that have plates tucked under... we can see them lol. i kid you not most of them can be read I didn't believe it but soon found out when i started checking images twice a day.
I heard the EZ tag doesn't pick up half the time anyways and am testing that theory. Kinda hoping that is the case so i dont pay so dang much!!!
Hey Dave, is it film or still pictures?

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!!!


^--lol.
i myself ride the line, but i still rock the paper plates =P
