Poor Service for $5.50

Recommended Posts

Never enough cash lanes open on any facility I've ever crossed.

 

I access these very rarely anyway, thankfully. I don't have an EZ-Pass. I can't have one because for whatever reason, the application "told" me that the pass can't be read from the kind of car I have when the pass is stuck on the windshield. I need one mounted on the license plate. I don't want it stolen from there, I don't want to lose it if for whatever reason I'm in a collision and my low hanging from license plate (due to how the car is made) gets lost with the pass on it.

All I can say is a few years ago when I researched it, my model year vehicle was on that list.

I see Windstars going through on EZPass all the time. It's a possibility that the old transponder wasn't strong enough, but now the new one is capable to register in your car. Try registering again.

 

Otherwise I know what you're talking about. Came home Sunday night via the Throgs Neck Bridge towards Queens. The cash lines were 20-25 cars deep, but I just breezed by with my EZPass.

Guess it's time to re-apply for one

I sent in an application the other day, we'll see what happens.

 

The old list I had when I bought the car new in 2002 was that only the 2001's couldn't get the winshield mounted EZ Pass.

I did re-apply and got it in the mail yesterday, so obviously my car will be OK otherwise they would have rejected the application.

 

Eventhough I have no current plans to use any MTA Bridge/Tunnel or any toll road for now, it will be nice to have one for the next time I need to pay a toll.

It's always good to have, especially when you whizz by a 15 to 20-deep cash line.

I learned that the hard way the last time I crossed the Whitestone in July when the Throgs Neck had the restrictions.
