It would also require RITBA “to send a notice to violators via email informing them that their driver’s license and vehicle registration may be in jeopardy for failing to pay tolls before reporting those violations to the Rhode Island Division of Motor Vehicles.” The bill passed on a vote of  34 to 0 (with three senators not voting).
