VA Governor McAuliffe Rips Up ERC Toll Bill to Signal “New Day” for Motorists

The Virginian-Pilot  reports, “Gov. Terry McAuliffe ripped up an Elizabeth River Crossings toll bill and threw it in the air at his [March 31] news conference. He announced it was a new day for those burdened with five-figure toll bills. Public pressure from the governor directed at the multinational companies that own Elizabeth River Crossings has ushered in a wave of billing changes. Some drivers who owe ERC thousands can now clear their debts for a fraction of the cost. While the changes won’t reduce or eliminate the tolls, they do go a long way to help people, McAuliffe said.”

The Virginian-Pilot also tells indebted motorists how to take advantage of ERC’s new penalty fee policies.
