EZ TAG Invoice
If you have an EZ TAG and still received a toll invoice, it's because your tag either didn't work or it's out of balance. You can login to your EZ TAG account to pay toll violation online.
Can I use my EZ TAG in more than one vehicle
No, it is not recommended to transfer tags as mounting the same EZ TAG on different vehicles can damage the chip inside.
