New York Legislators press Governor Cuomo to sign Toll Payer Protection Act by December 31st

As cashless tolling is being expanded in New York state, it remains unclear whether Gov. Andrew Cuomo will sign a measure designed to spare motorists the trouble that has plagued the system so far.

Sen. David Carlucci and Assemblyman Thomas Abinanti are urging the governor to sign the Toll Payer Protection Act before the Dec. 31 deadline. It was passed by both houses in June in response to the accounts of hundreds of motorists who faced hefty fines for unpaid tolls. Many of those had their vehicle registrations suspended for nonpayment, with some having their cars taken from them if police found them on the road.
