Florida: 7 months late Toll-By-Plate bills to show up in your mailbox

For seven months, the bills were missing in action.

The entire Toll-By-Plate billing system was spinning its wheels.

It was all tied to a June Florida Department of Transportation SunPass upgrade that fell flat on its face and cost you $287 million.

This week, bills are finally hitting the mail.

“There’s a lot being done behind the scenes,” Jay Trumbull, Florida Transportation Commission chairman, said.

The commission is now interviewing candidates to become the next FDOT secretary.

“I think the new administration will have a fresh look at it and probably be able to tackle it a little differently and maybe better,” Trumbull added.
