The Illinois Tollway violates the rights of people they accuse of blowing through toll booths and engages in routine extortion.
Their hearings are a complete kangaroo court. If you don't pay up, you are threatened with suspension of your licence plates. You are not allowed to bring witnesses and an employee of the tollway holds court. This is wrong and it's about time action is being taken. Now I avoid the tollways like the plague. Also, do not give these people your bank information; otherwise mysterious cashectomies happen with no explanation or transparency.

Wait a minute. There's somebody here who actually got through to a rep by phone? And they were nice? All the ones I've talked to have been more rotten than a DMV employee. And I just called to give them my new credit card info.

Unless the highways in Illinois is built and maintained by a Private Corporation, there should not be a Toll Road in Illinois at all. That is what the Illinois Gasoline Taxes are supposed to be for, building and maintaining Illinois roads. The Illinois Toll Road authority should be abolished altogether.
