Drove 20 miles on toll road here... Cost about $60!! But I did not have to use my collision deductible driving thru Awstun.. Especially with the current visit from his and her majesty.

Yes you may pur. Il. [you do not have to live in Il. to pur.] I-pass pay a deposit with credit card for usage, when bal. gets low you can either replenish or use up funds then return To Il. toll way authority. They will credit card for unused funds if all not used Il. I-pass can be used in other states also, just google what states have agreements with Il. & there isn't any extra charge for using in other states that I no of as I have never paid extra. Bill

I had a patient before my retirement, the CEO of a motorhome manufacturing company, who had 2 or 3 California EZ-pass transponders in his car. Each one for a different toll road in California since he frequently traveled in different areas. He did not realize he was charged separately for each account every time he traveled the tollway. AEW

When I did not have a NY EzPass, I used to go through tolls with trailer via man cash booth, and they had always charged me per axle. Since I was with trailer, the cost was triple above regular car charge. Now I have an EzPass, and I go through non-stop lane, and I have no idea how they charge, per axle, or per run.

Does anyone know how their system scan it if you go with more that two axles?

Also with Il. I-pass you can state dif. vehicles. that will use & if trailer on list you will not be charged in not towing listed trailer.

It always knows when I do it.

I've asked if I could use EZPass when towing, as my account show jut the vehicle with two axles. They alway told me it was OK when towing.

In theory when you are towing even a one-axle trailer, you are supposed to have a different NYS EZ Pass. I called in and got one added to my account, even though I did go through tolls before and was not charged for the trailer.

I would rather comply with the letter of the law, than be subject to some future violation by a zealous tollbooth attendant or NYS Trooper.

Thank you Otra for the picture.
However, when we run through EZ Pass on Airstream Interstate without trailer, it should be considered as a regular car, correct?

We have one for the truck and one for the truck with trailer. The right one is on the windshield and the other one is in the foil bag in the glove box so we don't get charged for both when going through tolls.

Yes Mr. B, I do the same as SteveSueMac -- two different EZ Passes according to the vehicle configurations.

Although I am not positive your Interstate is considered a passenger vehicle on its own. In some states there may be an "Recreational Vehicle" designation which applies?

I would say the Interstate qualifies like a "car". From the EZ pass site - q&a about determining vehicle tolls:


I have dual rear wheels on my pickup truck. Does this affect my vehicle classification?
No. Dual rear wheels are not a determining factor for vehicle classification. Classification will be based on height and axles regardless of the number of tires on each axle.

Given that an Interstate is nearly 10 feet tall, it may not be classified as a car if height is a factor.
