DALLAS (September 11, 2013)--Drivers who zip through North Texas Tollway Authority booths without paying could encounter problems when it’s time to renew vehicle registrations.
A state law that took effect this month allows the NTTA to work with county tax offices to block the nearly 80,000 toll dodgers from renewing registrations.
Dallas County Commissioners voted Tuesday to grant the county’s tax assessor-collector the authority to work with the NTTA to refuse vehicle registrations for habitual toll violators.
Officials in Denton and Tarrant counties have similar agreements in the works.
The law grants multicounty toll agencies new enforcement powers - but with a grace period.
Habitual violators have until Friday to work out payment plans and avoid some violation fees.
