AUSTIN, Texas – Local law enforcement teams are actively watching the tollways operated by TX DOT.
The toll runners they are looking for are those who owe thousands of dollars, according to TX DOT spokesperson Veronica Beyer.
“If they see them driving on the toll roads they are going to pull them over and possibly impound their cars,” said Beyer.
TX DOT recently released a list of top 9 drivers who are now prohibited to be on its tollways. Most of the alleged toll runners are from the Austin metro area. Two are not from central Texas; Laredo and San Antonio. Beyer says the agency has reached out to them all.
“We have had numerous communications with these people, via snail mail, email phone calls, they know who they are, they know they’ve done the wrong thing its time for them to pay up,” said Beyer.
