TX Drivers Can Prevent Toll Charge Mistakes after Selling a Car

Fort Worth Star-Telegram assures readers there is a “relatively easy” and “sure-fire” way to ensure they will not be charged for someone else’s tolls after selling their car. The newspaper notes, “From time to time, stories surface about people who have been slapped with large toll bills — often totaling hundreds of dollars — after selling a car to someone who didn’t then immediately transfer the vehicle title into his or her name.” However, this “tricky situation” can be avoided by simply submitting a form to the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles, the newspaper explains.
