    i got a toll violation in California at the Bay bridge. I remember I didn’t have the $26 or something and I thought the guy let me off the hook but I guess the tag readers got me.
    I have a $51 ticket now and it will keep going up if I don’t pay.
    If i don’t pay it says they will put a hold on my refrigeration. I don’t live in California.
    I don’t really like California and don’t really care-if I go back so my question is if I don’t pay it what can happen?
    Will I only get in trouble if I was to be in California?
    Thanks guys again, hope you all made good this week.

    You won't be able to register the truck until you pay. These states mostly have reciprocal agreements and their computers talk to each other

    I think this is an opportunity for everyone to stand together and no one pay tolls anymore in California.

    What could they do?

    Is their a wash off period? I guess I’m making a big deal out of 50 bucks but I’m also curious. But then again it is still cheaper to pay the toll to continue to use my tags instead of the carrier I’m leased to so.

    If it’s anything like the fast trak here south Cali..... you can go to there website and pay the toll without the fine. I’m sure they have some kind of website. If worse case scenario.... pay it before it keeps going up.... and learn from it. Goodluck...

    Edit; Fast trak here in SoCal are for 4 wheelers.

    I think it would be more effective if we all sit at the gate.

    "Today in the communist state tolls were suspended as trucks were backed up as far as 15 miles because they refused to be fleeced any longer."
