House votes for photos at cash-only toll lanes
The House has voted to allow photos to be taken of vehicles in cash-only lanes to catch drivers evading New Hampshire tolls.
The 252-96 vote yesterday sends the bill back to the Senate for review. If a driver pays the cash toll, the image of the vehicle will be destroyed within three seconds. If the driver fails to pay the toll, the photo of the license plate is kept to ensure the toll is paid. The same system is used for EZPass lanes.
Currently, the cash toll booths use an honor system. When a driver claims to have no cash, he or she is given a slip of paper to pay the toll. Bill supporters said the number of people who fail to send in the money is growing.
