TELL US YOUR NIGHTMARE TOLL BILL STORIES
Now’s the time to share every nightmare toll bill story. Had a $2.00 toll bill mushroom into $200? Had your vehicle impounded or registration blocked? Been overbilled or had fines tacked on due a payment card expiring or not working and they failed to notify you and instead tacked on thousands in fines and fees?
Come share your stories with the committee. We may never get another chance. We need this voted out of committee ASAP for it to have the time needed to head to the senate and become law.
Spread the word!
