If my fellow drivers claims are based in fact, I hope they receive justice. I own two vehicles registered with EZPass, one driven by my wife and one driven by myself. I use the EZPass lane, while my wife prefers to use the cash lane due to her getting a "staight shot" at the lanes of the south bridge and difficulty of getting others to let her merge from the right or left lane. I have received no letters claiming excessive speed at toll barriers in the past 12 years. One only needs to follow the posted speed limits on any local highway to find drivers passing on both right and left lanes, honking horns, and giving obscene jestures. I tend to drive the maximum speed while all this occurs, not to mention if someone is behind me when I make a complete stop at a stop sign on any local street. Personally, I'm for stricter enforcement of all traffic laws - but then I'm just a responsible driver and parent that has to explain to my children why they need to follow the rules while others don't.

Are you suggesting that EZ Pass doesn't make these kind of mistakes? If you are I'm here to tell you a story. They sent us a bill that was very threatening claiming that our truck had been in Manhattan and run the ez pass, our truck didn't have an ezpass on it and we don't drive on the thruway with it...especially not to NYC. It took many phone calls and letters and finally, my husband talked with William Parment our assemblyman to get it straightened out. I feel sorry for anyone who gets caught up in this mess as it seemed so overwhelmingly stressful to prove the truth!
