Tough Penalties for Toll Violators
State law gives TxTag and the Texas Department of Transportation express tools to enforce toll violations, including the authority to make public the names of habitual violators who have continually failed to pay their tolls.
In addition to publishing the list of top violators, TxDOT also has the authority to:
- Ban vehicles from using TxDOT toll roads with Texas Transportation Commission approval. If stopped by law enforcement, vehicles in violation of the ban can be ticketed and impounded.
- Report the habitual violators to county tax assessor-collectors to potentially block the renewal of their vehicle registration.
Motorists with unpaid tolls and fees should contact the TxTag Customer Service Center at 1-888-468-9824 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays. A negotiated settlement amount may be offered as well as a payment plan, if needed.
