How to Pay Missed Toll in Texas
Click on the map to open toll wiki for a country/state
When you drive through an electronic toll lane in any of the Texas toll facility without a valid toll tag it is counted as missed toll or toll violation. In such an event, the vehicle owner is served an invoice with details of the missed toll and instructions to pay it along with a fine (in some cases) by the concerned tolling authority. Thus the process of missed toll notification and payment depends upon the Texas tolling agency whose toll you missed paying.
If you have missed toll payment on any of the Texas toll facilities, we suggest you wait for the authorities to mail you the bill and instructions to pay it. Alternatively, if you have a toll tag account, you can log into your account, look at all the due tolls and pay toll online.
Missed toll for NTTA toll points
What is ZipCash
ZipCash is a video toll payment system under NTTA. When a motorist without a valid toll tag drives through tolling points, high-speed cameras take digital images of the license plate, and the tolls are billed to the registered owner of the vehicle.
It offers a pay-by-mail option at higher rates for customers who do not have a TollTag. Although TollTag customers receive the lowest toll rates on NTTA roads; ZipCash customers pay at least 50 percent more than TollTag users. ZipCash customers (toll violators) receive bills monthly as part of the new Simplified Billing structure.
How to pay ZipCash invoice
You can pay ZipCash invoice in following ways:
