TxDOT to release names of top toll jumpersOctober 17, 2013
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Texas Department of Transportation says it will reveal the names of the state's top toll jumpers.
The agency best known as TxDOT said the names will go up on the Internet on Thursday, after setting a noon deadline on Wednesday for folks to pay up.
The agency said there are $27 million in unpaid tolls from state-owned toll roads. Officials say they've sent notices to 28,000 vehicle owners. Some of the offenders have thousands of unpaid tolls.
In addition to publishing the names of the scofflaws, the department may also ban the vehicles from all toll roads and impound the vehicle if police stop it. TxDOT can also notify county tax assessors to block vehicle owners from renewing their registrations.
The names will be posted on http://txdot.gov .
