KDKA: PA Turnpike is “Mad as Hell” at Scofflaws as New Enforcement Law Is Set to Take Effect This August

KDKA reports, “With a nod to a classic movie, ‘the Pennsylvania Turnpike is mad as &*%$ and it’s not going to take it anymore.’ For as long as tolls have been collected on the turnpike, there have been drivers trying to evade the tolls and the lost dollars are adding up.” Turnpike CEO Mark Compton tells the station that last year, the agency was ‘chasing $40 million and we wrote off $5.4 million [in tolls and fees].’” The report looks at a state law providing the agency with more enforcement authority that takes effect in August.
