The Illinois tollway announced today that it will offer drivers the ability to check images of license plates and dispute tollway fines online. If you receive a violation notice, there is now a way to verify that it was your vehicle that missed the toll. Illinoistollway.com now has a feature that allows users to determine whether the violation was proper issued.
The Illinois tollway generates violations after three missed tolls in a two-year period. After review, a driver may dispute a mistake citing either “plate incorrect” or “missing image.” The Illinois State Roll Highway Authority will review these disputes and send decisions via email. This procedure saves a considerable amount of time from the old process.
During a test period in March, almost 900 drivers viewed license plate images using the new feature. Forty disputes were filed through the website during this timeframe.
