How do American Toll Roads Collect Payment
On most USA toll roads, bridges, and tunnels you will have three payment options to pay your tolls.
- If you install a Tag, an eligible transponder (E-ZPass, SunPass, TollTag, TxTag, FasTrak, I-PASS, PikePass, AutoExpreso, etc.), you do not need to stop to pay the toll. This toll is “Tag” toll.
- If you do not have an eligible Tag installed, some tolling agencies take a picture of your license plate and send you a bill. This toll is “Video” (Pay By Plate, ZipCash, TollByPlate, Pay by Mail, License Plate Toll etc.) toll.
- At some locations, you stop and pay toll by cash or credit or a debit card, the toll is “Cash” toll.
