INDOT looking for those who haven't paid toll fine

Posted: Updated:

Drivers on the Wabash Toll Bridge say they are being charged more times than they should be.

On Friday, the Indiana Department of Transportation says they are going after violators who haven't paid their fines.

So far, they've only sent out 10 letters and it's important to note that they're only going after those habitual traffic offenders, in other words, people who have a hefty fine.

Travis Clowers, the Posey County Prosecutor, says they won't take you to court over $15-$20 and that some Indiana toll bridges have switched to an automated system.

Clowers also says they could end up using this new rule as a model in other parts of the state.

"Now it's completely automated and I think that other areas of the state could be looking at and turning to this as a cost saving measure and an efficiency," says Clowers. "However, I think they're going to see how it works out here first and we could be a pilot for future bridges that are looking at doing that."

Those who owe several hundred dollars could end up going to court and the find it just over $200 including any court costs.

Drivers who think they've been mischarges should contact INDOT as soon as possible.
