FINAL CHANCE:

WAIVER PROGRAM ALLOWS TOLL VIOLATORS TO PAY THEIR TOLLS WITHOUT CIVIL PENALTIES

Waiver Period Open From Oct. 16 Through Nov. 16

BALTIMORE, MD – The Maryland Transportation Authority’s (MDTA) one month waiver program for toll violators to pay off their toll debt without paying civil penalties officially begins tomorrow.  Between Oct. 16 and Nov. 16, 2015, the MDTA will waive civil penalties ($50 per transaction) and cease further enforcement activities for any pending Video Toll that a customer pays during this period.

For those with unpaid tolls, now is the time to take action and pay up to put their accounts in good standing.  For those who contested to court but have not been scheduled or appeared in court, their civil penalties will be waived and the court date cancelled if their toll balance is paid in full between Oct. 16 and Nov. 16, 2015, and before their court date (if scheduled).

This unique waiver program will happen only once.  Immediately following the one month waiver period, the MDTA will begin referring toll violators to the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) for flagging and suspending vehicle registrations, and toll debt to the Maryland Central Collection Unit (CCU) in accordance with 2013 legislation passed by the Maryland General Assembly. 

Customers with unpaid Video Tolls can pay by the following methods:

  • Visit ezpassmd.com (click PAY VIDEO TOLLS).
  • Mail check/money order payable to E-ZPass Maryland to P.O. Box 17600, Baltimore, MD 21297 (include license plate number with payment).
  • Call the Maryland Video Toll Payment Line at 1-866-320-9995 during regular business hours (7 a.m. - 6 p.m., Monday – Friday).
  • Visit an E-ZPass Maryland Stop-In Center (locations/hours at ezpassmd.com).
