Maryland lawmaker seeks to cap late fees on unpaid tolls (HB38)

In the coming months, any remaining toll booths in Maryland will be coming down as the state gets ready to go entirely cashless.

But though drivers without an E-ZPass will be able to go through as quickly as those with, they still face obstacles, which a bill in the Maryland General Assembly seeks to address.

Currently, if you travel the Intercounty Connector or pass through any other Maryland toll road without an E-ZPass, the state takes a picture of your license plate and mails a bill for the toll to the address the plate is registered to. If the bill isn’t paid within 30 days, a $50 civil penalty gets tacked on, even if the toll is just a couple of dollars.
