Busted at the bridge. A driver has been accused of going to great lengths to avoid paying tolls.
Carlucci cites a study that found $7 million in uncollected tolls over a four year period at the Tappan Zee Bridge alone.
Port Authority police have arrested a truck driver, who they say has cheated the agency of $28,000 in tolls. Marcus Tifa is charged with theft of services and tampering with public records.
The Port Authority is also going after drivers who alter their license plates. One driver installed a toggle switch on his dash board which made the plate flip up, so cameras couldn’t catch him dodging the tolls.
