Tougher penalties for non-payers

Subject to certain procedural requirements, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) may issue a determination that a registered owner is a “habitual violator”. A habitual violator is a registered owner of a vehicle who was issued multiple statements that have unpaid transactions within a period of a year and has not paid in full the total amount due for tolls and late fees under those notices. Following a final determination regarding the person’s habitual violator status, TxDOT, by order of the Texas Transportation Commission, may prohibit the operation of the motor vehicle used to incur the unpaid tolls on all TxDOT toll projects. Operation of the vehicle on a toll project in violation of the order is a Class C misdemeanor. A subsequent violation may result in impoundment of the vehicle. TxDOT may also report the determination to a county-assessor collector or the Texas Department of Motor Vehicle in order to cause denial of the vehicle registration. Don’t let this happen to you— call us at 1-888-468-9824 to resolve your outstanding tolls.
