TARRYTOWN, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – No cash, no coins, no problem – that’s the plan for the toll plaza on the new Tappan Zee Bridge.
The Journal News reports that the New York State Thruway Authority is looking into a high-tech system of traffic cams and electronic tag readers.
Cashless tolls are designed to stop the delays caused when drivers are pulled over for trying to go through a toll plaza without any cash.
One driver said he supports the idea of cashless tolls following his recent headache.
“I didn’t have any money or E-ZPass and I had to send a ticket into the state about a month ago. That’d be really convenient,” the man told WCBS 880’s John Metaxas.
