(WTNH) –According to the New York Times, New York state is set to eliminate the cash option for paying tolls at all “metropolitan transportation” authority” bridges and tunnels next year.
The group will use sensors and cameras to automatically charge cars equipped with “EZ pass”. Those without will have their license plates recorded by camera — and a bill will be mailed to the registered owner of that vehicle. On average 800,000 vehicles use the authority’s seven bridges and two tunnels each day.
Automated tolls already in place on the ‘Tappan Zee Bridge’ and the ‘Henry Hudson Bridge’.
