I was told by the NY ez-pass people to use a booth with a toll taker when towing the trailer so that they can hit the correct botton. They said using the automatic lane could result in the wrong fee or possible ticket. Said that ez-passes that go on tractor trailers are coded for the extra axles.

I find it amazing that every state has vastly different rules and ways of doing business all under the EZ Pass name. You would think there should be some consistency! When we got ours in PA we were told we could use any of our vehicles in any combination as long as all the vehicles were listed on the account. Only one transponder would be needed.

This is totally true; IN PA. PA toll booths (except the 2 near Philadelphia - Parx Casino and Virginia Ave) Pennsylvania Highways:* Pennsylvania Turnpike Exit Guide have axle counters on the approach to the booth.

Not true in most other states.

Another EZ-Pass toll problem that I've consistently seen is crossing the Delaware Memorial Bridge, between DE & NJ. Every time that I've done it with the EZ-Pass it tries to charge me the commercial vehicle rate of $5 per axle ($20) instead of the advertised rate of $8 for an auto with a two-axle trailer. After several trips that took more than a few months to get a refund credited (the Bridge Authority is a separate entity than DE DOT or EZ-Pass, and is not a very "user-friendly" entity), I stopped using the EZ-Pass on this bridge, and just pull it down, put it in he foil pouch, and just pay the $8 cash when I cross this bridge....

Fire Instructor..not only do we have the same model TT as you, but we also have the same problem on the Delaware Memorial Bridge. Matter of fact I am currently in the middle of a dispute with them right now. They charged us $20 (commercial rate) in May, I (once again) applied for the refund and believe it or not they DENIED my request. I called back and tried to hold my anger down and ask how can they not look at the vehicles we have registered..which are a pickup and a TT, and adjust the error. The woman on the line said.."well you were towing something but we don't know what it was so we need to assume you are commercial vehicle". If I could have reached through the line and smacked her upside her head I may have just done that! Anyway, I am now appealing (again) this decision. Our transducer is on the license plate so it is a real pain to have to take off. So if in the near future you see some crazy lady on the news throwing an EZ-Pass transducer off a bridge you know who it will be!
