The new Florida SunPass booth-less tolling system being put in place on the southern Florida Turnpike on Feb. 19, 2011 may create many more instances of erroneous toll violations.
The new system should be familiar to current Florida SunPass owners as it works similar to the high-speed SunPass only lanes already in use at many toll plazas. However, the new tolling process between milepost 0 and milepost 47 in South Florida will eliminate the plaza entirely, leaving only a row of high speed cameras designed to capture the license plates of cars without SunPass transponder units or stickers.
When the camera captures a photo of your license plate it issues a toll to the name and address registered to that plate. It is here that problems begin to arise. The current SunPass system has already had numerous claims of erroneous violations being sent when a license plate is misread. If you receive an invoice in the mail for toll charges you did not incur it may be time to consult with a Miami traffic ticket lawyer.
You can fight these charges if you can work with your lawyer to prove that your vehicle did not go through the toll at the times logged on your invoice. Fighting these charges requires experienced legal knowledge that a Miami traffic ticket lawyer can provide you.
The new changes to the SunPass toll system have the potential to cut down on driver delays, but also increase the potential of erroneous charges and violations. If you suspect you were the victim of an erroneous invoice or Florida toll violation, contact a Miami traffic ticket lawyer.
