TARRYTOWN, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – Toll cheats may be in for a rougher ride if one New York state senator has his way.
State Senator David Carlucci wants to make it easier for the Department of Motor Vehicles to block registration renewals of drivers convicted of cheating tolls.
Carlucci cites a study that found $7 million in uncollected tolls over a four year period at the Tappan Zee Bridge alone. The new bridge will host cashless tolls. Carlucci wants the state to do more than file lawsuits and send angry letters to toll cheats.
