    Default Photo Radar - Super Protector

    Anybody use their super protector license plate shield to go through the express lane in tollways. i use the tollway everyday to work and i have to make 4 stops, each cost a $1.25. So i spend about 10 bucks a day getting to and from work in the Houston area. One day i though i had the right amount of change to pay the toll but came up short so i went through the express lane. The express lane is for people that have what is called an ez-tag and is usually put on their visor in their car to permit them to use the express lane and i think they pay 29.95 a month for that.

    Going back to the day i had didnt have the change in my pocket i went through the express lane and then a photo was taken of my license plate while passing through. I was mailed a fine for $1.25 for the toll and $15.00 charge for a processing fee and a photo was shown of the back of my car and my license plate.

    Hmmm... that super protector would blur out my license plate everytime and i would save a ton of money. Anybody else try or do this? Its a cash cow tollway anyways and has been paid for many times over so what the hell.....
    Anyone thought of doing this or have been doing this for some time?

    sounds funny to me, they might catch onto you after a while.
    might have a cop waiting for you at the other end.

    if your car is standard with no tell tail sighs on the back then you could get away with it again i would think.

    Wow, 1.25 per toll :shock: Thats alot... But yea, eventually, they might put a cop there or something. Here in Florida, the EZ-tag(sunpass) doesnt require a monthly payment. Its more like you pay like 25 bucks for one, then you have to at least put a starting amount of 25 dollars. Everytime you go through the toll, it charges you the amount of the toll, sometimes even lower.
