NEWARK, N.J. — A large part of the electronic enforcement system designed to catch E-Zpass toll cheaters has been shut down temporarily.
The automatic enforcement system has been issuing hundreds of thousands of false tickets, and state officials haven’t been able to completely fix the problem yet. They’ve extended a moratorium on mailing out toll violations.
The shutdown means drivers can beat tolls at almost 300 E-ZPass automated toll booths on the Garden State Parkway and the New Jersey Turnpike. Equipment has been fixed at some toll booths and they are producing tickets, but state officials won’t say which booths are working properly.
According to local media reports, regular enforcement of E-ZPass tolls will start again next March when repairs are complete.
