3. The NYS Thruway is converting to Cashless Tolling by the end of this year. *This question is required.
CORRECT!
True! The Thruway Authority is modernizing its 570-mile transportation system by converting to cashless tolling. Cashless tolling reduces congestion, improves traffic flow, is better for the environment, and allows for non-stop travel on New York’s toll roads, bridges and tunnels. The NYS Thruway is scheduled to convert to an entirely cashless tolling system by the end of 2020. For drivers with E-ZPass, your Tag will continue to be read as you travel under a cashless tolling gantry, and you won't have to worry about receiving a Toll Bill in the mail.

4. The NYS Thruway charges a monthly fee for E-ZPass. *This question is required.
INCORRECT!
False!
There are no monthly fees and motorists are charged based on toll usage. As you travel, the toll amount is deducted from your E-ZPass prepaid toll balance. You can choose to have your prepaid toll balance replenished automatically, by adding a debit or credit card or checking account to your account. When your prepaid toll balance gets below a preset threshold, your E-ZPass account will automatically replenish. Your prepaid toll balance will remain on your account until you use it. E-ZPass also offers other payment plans such as Pay Per Trip, which links your E-ZPass account to your checking account and pays all your E-ZPass tolls once per day.

Your E-ZPass can be used to issue you a speeding ticket.

*This question is required.
INCORRECT!
False!
 Your E-ZPass information is not used by law enforcement to issue a speeding ticket. For the safety of toll collectors and all motorists, speed is monitored at toll plazas. Traveling too fast in a toll lane could affect your E-ZPass account, but it will not result in a Vehicle Traffic Citation.

Your E-ZPass can be moved from one vehicle to another.

*This question is required.
CORRECT!
True! You can use your E-ZPass Tag in ANY vehicle of the same class. We will give you extra mounting strips to mount your tag in other vehicles. If your E-ZPass Tag fails to read at a tolling facility, the license plate number will be used to find your E-ZPass account, so it’s a good idea to list the license plates on your E-ZPass account. Fact: The license plate registration does not need to be in the same name as the E-ZPass account holder. For example, if you want to get one E-ZPass tag for your family, and move it from car to car, you can. Or, if you want to use your tag on a road trip with a friend, you can.
