I passed through cashless E-ZPass booths several times between New Jersey and New York in December and January. I don't have a monthly pass, but I'm willing to pay the fees.
The issue is that I never received bills (from E-ZPass; MTA Bridges & Tunnels). This is obviously not a good situation to be in, so in March I called up customer support. They told me I had a $15 toll fee for early December, but absolutely nothing else. I paid it, but they said "nothing else (the latter toll fees) is showing up in the system."
In April I received a letter stating that I need to pay those toll fees, plus an additional $100 for each toll fee. This is ridiculous, because the original fees were $8.50 (listed in the letter).
I had no way of knowing since I didn't receive the bills, and customer support had said that they didn't have any information about them. I wasn't able to pay because there was no violation number to pay for. I contacted them again today and they simply told me to take it up with the postal office, who they blamed for not delivering my mail "reliably". I've had no problem with mail delivery, ever.
This sounds very fishy. I did some searching and found that there are many people in the same situation (https://www.consumeraffairs.com/utilities/ez_pass.html).
So if I don't surrender the fees (more than 1200% of the base toll fees!) they will disable my license.
Do I have any options other than paying all the additional fees?
