Ohio River Bridges Toll Enforcement Rules Undergo Public Scrutiny

WDRB reports, “Under Kentucky’s plan to crack down on drivers who don’t pay their RiverLink toll bills, the state is giving vehicle-enforcement officers the power to order commercial trucks with unpaid tolls off the road.” At a December 22 public hearing on RiverLink toll system regulations, a Louisville trucking company executive questioned the practicality of the stop-and-detain rule in enforcing toll payment by truckers from states other than Kentucky and Indiana. WDRB gets the response of Kentucky officials and looks at other enforcement and collection procedures set out in the regulations, as well as Kentucky’s plans for entering into reciprocal enforcement agreements with other states.
