I drove to Charleston over the weekend and almost forgot to bring cash for the tolls. I've often wondered what happens if you drive up and have no money. Has it happened to you? What do they say to you?

They take your address and send you a bill.

Run the booth and it's likely they'll take your license number and send a cop. I'd stop and just explain & leave my name and address and wait for a bill.

[1] You dont pay shit for these tolls.
[2] They are a major north/south through way for the eastern US.
[3] Prices rise with demand, buy in town. Dumbass.
[4] Get yourself some hotdogs in your car. Free lunch.
[5] 19 is an entry/exit for 64.
[6] If you dont like it, you can literally get anywhere you want to without taking the toll roads. Drive those. Takes too long? Then shut up and pay.

I was out of cash they refused my debit (sure its because they are commiting fraud) they gave me a piece of paper and said my state would suspend my license if I didn't pay. I did not and have not heard anything yet.
When I do I plan to fight it tooth and nail. Would have been cheap to send $2 but is a bitch slap to my rights to unimpeded travel.

Are you going to quit paying your car payment too. You have the right to travel, but sometimes it cost you money to go the easy way. You should stand up for rights and travel two lane back roads all the time. That will show them who is boss. I pay the tolls everyday, it sucks but it is better then the alternative route.

I think they should take the toll off also. Whoever designed the turnpike did an awful job,turns with a slant on them at the bottom of the mountain! I don't understand why they wouldn't take your debit card,as long as you had some other type of ID.I have heard that they will take your name and address and bill you but I never had to deal with something like that, I always throw my extra change in one of the change holders in my vehicle(which I could buy a steak dinner for me and my sweetie :) we should boycott and take another route, but would mean we would have to get up early to get where we wanna get,yea,I can hear you now:)

Actually they tell you to go to the ATM between the two and make you pay for both tolls. I've done this before and asked if they take credit cards

I have an EZ Pass for North Beckley only but last time I went to charleston, my EZ Pass worked for both those tolls. Are they going to send me a bill for $8?

Get an easy pass. Lol. I pay five dollars a year for the toll on 19. I can also add money any time i need to if i want to travel to charleston or princeton. I think you can get all for tolls for like 300 something a year. Do the math you may save a little.

They just give you a piece of paper saying how much you owe. If you didn't stop for money before the next toll you give the paper ticket back. They then give you an updated ticket reflecting the $4 for both tolls. You have I think 10 days to either mail in the money you owe,stop by a toll(charleston,Beckley,or bluefield tolls)to pay, or call and pay over the phone. I've forgot money for the tolls before and this is what they did.

Funny about the pennies...traveling south on 77 on Thanksgiving day traffic was backed up for miles from the toll plaza C,while sitting there,slowly inching our way to the toll booth and the kids saying are we there yet, we started looking for every penny we could find. Then for a educational lesson I had them to count the toll plaza amount out. Of course the operator didn't seem too happy,don't blame them,but the DOH didn't even have all the booths open!! What's up with that? But the time went by a lot faster and the kids had a good time going no where. I always get a smile on my face whenever I come up on toll plaza C.:)
