Toll Violators Could Face Registration Suspensions



ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Motorists who repeatedly speed through New York state toll booths without a working E-ZPass would see their vehicle registrations suspended under legislation being considered by lawmakers.

State Sen. David Carlucci says Friday that his proposal would allow toll officials to suspend the registration of anyone who racks up five toll violations within 18 months.
  
Under current law, toll evaders are contacted by a collection agency and only face the loss of their registration if they've committed multiple violations within the same locality.
  
Carlucci says he hopes lawmakers approve his proposal when they return to Albany later this month. Gov. Andrew Cuomo supports the idea.
  
Scofflaws ran up $35 million in unpaid tolls and fines on the New York Thruway between 2007 and 2011.
