407 ETR Agrees to $8 Million Settlement over Freezing License Plate Renewals of Bankrupt Drivers

Toronto Star reports, “The private company that maintains the 407 toll highway has agreed to pay almost $8 million to settle a class action lawsuit over bankrupt drivers who have had their license plates denied” because of unpaid tolls and fees incurred before bankruptcy. . . . The class action suit challenged the 407 ETR’s practice of denying license plates post-bankruptcy.” The terms of the agreement are still subject to court approval.
