Motorist Uses Remote Control to Cover Plate, Avoid Toll. FL Highway Patrol Is Right Behind Him. (A Remote Control, but No Rearview Mirror?)

WKMG reports that a motorist allegedly used a remote-controlled device to cover his license plate as he passed through a Central Florida Expressway Authority E-PASS lane.  The man’s toll avoidance scheme had just one tiny flaw: the vehicle behind him was a Florida Highway Patrol unit. The motorist was arrested on felony theft and fraud charges. The toll was $1.25.
