Default WWVBOTD?

So a week ago I crossed a toll bridge on I-65 between Kentucky and Indiana. It's one of those all-electronic toll bridges, so if you don't have an account you're supposed to go on their web site, enter your vehicle information, and pay your toll with a credit card. However, when I entered the info it found nothing, and it's been over a week now.

What Would VBOT Do?

Wait and see if I get a bill. Sometimes the cameras blur numbers and they throw it out.

Really? Around here they take a pic of your license plate as you cross over and send you a bill.

OBTW, this was a rental car, so the invoice (if any) will go to the rental car company, who will no doubt tack on some rapacious fee along with the actual toll.

In that case I would say contact the rental company and arrange to pay them.

I have a FasTrak transponder here in SoCal and they do Pay By Plate as well. There have been a few instances where the transponder failed to read and the camera failed to get my license plate. The technology is not infallible.

Florida has number of similar toll roads. If they got a clear shot of your plate you will receive a bill in the mail within a couple of weeks.

If I pay the toll authority before they send an invoice the rental company will never even know (and won't dry rape me with extra fees).

Yup, the rental car company will bend you over and come in dry compared to the actual toll fee

Why not go through again, this time with your pants down masturbating vigorously. That’s what I’d do anyway.

Next time you get pulled over on I-65 in Either Indiana or Kentucky.....

When the Trooper asks you to step out of the Vehicle.. Cuffs you... and you ask why...

The in Squad Car Computer has a warrant out for your arrest stemming from the bridge toll violation down there at Jeffersonville...
