Tolls on I-66

Apparently the toll system is not exactly working as planned yet when it comes to motorcycles:

Interesting. I've never had a problem being charged in the 395/495/95 HOT lanes--I often have the E-ZPass on the bike for those trips.

I use the 66 lanes every day, but I don't have the E-ZPass mounted for commuting.

Sad that they have to devise an enforcement counter-measure for every scam imaginable. In this case using a motorcycle E-ZPass on a car or truck.

My EZ Pass will register the use, but zero fee on the bike.
