Some drivers are going to outrageous lengths to avoid paying tolls, which cost tax payers tens of millions of dollars in lost revenue every year.
Within a few minutes Trooper Luis Tejera spotted a dump truck with something odd about the license plate: it was smudged with grease.
Tejera called in the plate number and discovered the driver has paid only three tolls in three months.
Other driver actually had attached cables to his front and rear license plates. It allowed him to activate a lever that would cause the tags to fold up to hide the plates from toll booth cameras.
A female driver who had a plate with a special plastic cover. Tejera says the plastic is designed to make the plate numbers illegible when viewed from the top and side – angles where toll cameras would be watching.
But Trooper Tejera removed it and cited the driver. It turns out, she wasn’t just any driver; she’s a corrections officer and was still wearing her uniform when Tejera pulled her over.
