RITBA Starts Penalizing Drivers with Unmounted Transponders

WPRI-TV News (Providence) reports that 30 E-ZPass customers have had to pay the cash toll rate on the Newport Pell Bridge since the Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority (RITBA) started a campaign to enforce its transponder mounting requirements. RITBA tells the newspaper that approximately one thousand motorists each month impede traffic and create safety risks at the toll plaza because their transponders are not properly affixed to their windshields.
