Yes. We have a Toll Road here, E-470. You can either obtain a transponder, or you can receive a bill in the mail from a picture they take of your licence plate.

I'm just waiting for the day, when the police simply record your transponder signal as you speed by, and mail you the ticket. Talk about the next generation of "red-light" cameras ....

I just installed my TREO transponder decal. Apparently a scanner picks up your vehicle as you enter the bridge. The fall-back technology involves license plate recognition: you are sent a bill in the mail.

Hi yodudebc. There are no toll roads, bridges or tunnels where I live. I don't know of any license plate recognition systems yet either. :-) MGY

In Minnesota we have them on the HOV lanes of the freeeways. There are lanes dedicated to only car poolers and buses, but if you are alone in your car and still want to use the HOV lane you can buy a device to put in your car and then they send you a bill every month according to how many times your car was scanned driving in the HOV lanes.

Newly installed on two bridges. There has already been a scandal about the misuse of information collected from those who ordered transponders.
