Tri axles and E Z Pass
If you tow a tri axle trailer and use any form of E Z Pass you should pay particular attention to your toll statement.
About half of the toll authorities I have encountered with my E Z pass charge the wrong toll for a tri axle trailer when towed by a pickup or SUV. The E Z Pass equipement is set up to consider any vehical with more than 4 axles as a tractor trailer and thus the higher rate. These errors in classification vary from authority to authority.
The Delaware Memorial Bridge charges double the posted toll for any non commerical vehical towing a trailer, one two or three axles.
The Maine Turnpike is closer to 3 times the posted toll.
While you can have these errors corrected by writing your E Z Pass authority it will take far longer than just going through a cash lane. So if you are not in a habit of checking your statement or on a road that you do not know the correct toll it's a good idea to pay cash.
So far I have not had a problem with New York, Pa. or the Potomic River and Annopolis bridges.
If you have had similar experiences with other toll roads or bridges add to this tread
