WBFO News

A review of New York State Thruway Authority records show a growing amount of uncollected tolls.

A tally covering the past five years indicates that $35 million in tolls and fines are still owed to the Authority over that period. The most common site for dodging tolls is identified as the Tappan Zee Bridge. This information surfaces as the Authority is pursuing a 45 percent toll hike on trucks.

Government officials are urging a closer look at the toll collection process before a fare hike is imposed.
