Drivers passing through West Virginia can no longer skip tolls at unmanned booths on the turnpike without paying the consequences.
According to the Associated Press, a new $6 million computerized collection system photographs the license plates of vehicles that pass through toll booths without paying.
The notice will be mailed to the violator, who faces a fine in addition to the toll.
The West Virginia Parkways Authority board voted Thursday to issue a letter of resolution marking completion of the toll system's installation.
The authority executive director, Greg Barr estimates that the turnpike will recover as much as $70,000 in skipped tolls annually.
