VDOT Secretary’s Letter Admonishes ERC over Unpaid Toll Fees

The Virginian-Pilot reports, “Transportation Secretary Aubrey Layne sent a letter to Elizabeth River Crossings CEO Gregory Woodsmall Friday [March 17] admonishing the toll operator for punishing motorists with what he described as unreasonable fees and urging the company to trim large debts. Even though ERC has agreed to a $2,200 cap for first-time court convictions, the company is socking some drivers with five-figure bills.” See Secretary Layne’s letter.
