Delaware Announces Amnesty Program For Toll Scofflaws

Delaware DOT announced that it will conduct a three-month amnesty program for Route 1 and I-95 toll violators beginning October 1. “Anyone with outstanding toll violations incurred . . . between January 1, 2014 and April 30, 2020 is eligible to participate.” The state is waiving civil penalties in return for violators paying their outstanding tolls plus an amnesty fee that is scaled according to the number of outstanding violations. DelDOT’s announcement notes that “close to $143 million owed by toll scofflaws is now going uncollected with some drivers facing thousands of dollars in fines and fees. . . .”
