Florida Only Accepting Electronic Tolls To Reduce COVID-19 Spread
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Tolls on the Florida Turnpike continue, but only through Sunpass or pay by plate. All employees have been reassigned. The change is part of Florida’s effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
No Sunpass? No problem. Your license plate will be photographed and a bill will be sent in the mail.
From the Florida Department of Transportation:
“As part of this initiative, customers should continue driving through the toll plaza and pay attention to overhead and portable signs. In addition, the following items will apply:
SunPass and interoperable customers will continue to have tolls posted to their accounts. Vehicles without a SunPass will be billed for toll transactions at the posted cash toll rate and receive a Toll Enforcement Invoice in the mail. The invoice administrative fee ($2.50) will temporarily be waived.
Drivers who elect to become a SunPass customer will receive several benefits including a discount on tolls of nearly 25%. SunPass works on all Florida toll roads and most bridges.
Customers will still be able to utilize the “Exact Coin Lanes” where there is no toll operator present to remit coin payment at those locations.
Additionally, customers who receive a Toll Enforcement Invoice and wish to open a SunPass account can go online at http://www.SunPass.com to pay the invoice, purchase a transponder, establish the account and receive the lower SunPass toll rate. The cost of a mini transponder ($4.99) will be credited back to the account, effectively making the transponder free.“
