NJ Motorists Are Frustrated by Coin Basket Snafus on the Garden State Parkway

The Press of Atlantic City reports, “Tolls are a frustrating part of driving on highways in New Jersey. Now imagine paying your toll but still ending up with a fine.” The newspaper spotlights a Facebook video post that shows a Garden State Parkway motorist dropping exact change into a coin collection bin without the toll payment registering. With no one at the plaza to complain to, the motorist “grumbles, curses and drives through, knowing in a few days a letter informing him of a $51.50 fine will be in his mailbox. ‘I’m getting ticket after ticket,’ he says in the video.” And, as the newspaper discovers, the motorist isn’t alone.
