Don’t speed: it could get your EZ Pass suspended

WASHINGTON – Speeding through toll plazas can get your EZ Pass privileges suspended.

USA TODAY reports that some states flag drivers and issue warnings if they drive too fast through the EZ Pass toll plaza lanes.

Maryland, for example, has a 30 mph speed limit for EZ Pass drivers traveling through toll plazas.  If drivers clock 12 miles per hour over the limit, they are mailed a warning. If a driver is issued two warnings in 6 months, their EZ Pass could be suspended.

VDOT, on the other hand, says they do not penalize drivers for speeding through toll plazas. Virginia drivers must sign a customer service agreement when they sign up for EZ Pass.

Other states that impose penalties for speeding are: New York and Pennsylvania.
