I had not heard of this "video" toll rate concept either. I was speaking to a friend about it just today who had recently been on a "video" toll rate freeway in Florida in the fall of last year. There was no opportunity to pay the toll to a live person on the toll-way he was on. The only two options were the electronic card or the video toll.

You gotta luv gub'ment. Now they've figured out yet another way to tax you without the need for a human being to make any kind of effort what-so-ever. But i digress.......


On edit: Do not try this on the toll-ways in Georgia. They will simply mail you a very expensive ticket that will follow you to the grave if you don't pay it.

In Austin, there are toll roads and some of the toll stations have no way to pay cash so they either pick up your toll transponder or will send a bill based on your license plate on the back of your vehicle. If you have the toll pass (transponder) you get a discount. I try to avoid the toll roads, but one day at 5:00 pm I did not want to get caught up in the Austin gridlock on I-35 so I took the toll road to get home pulling my Airstream. My transponder did not get detected and they sent me a bill with a transaction fee because they picked up the trailer plate which was not registered with my toll tag. After calling them, they decided to take the fee off and billed me for the discounted rate. The bill was still high due to being charged the same rate as an 18 wheeler. I will avoid the toll road unless absolutely necessary.
