Illinois Tollway is offering a new way for people who skip the tollbooth
to pay the state what they owe.
to the Tollway Web site, the new Violation Payment Plan would let
those people make payments on their debt. However, to qualify, they
must owe at least $500 for tolls skipped before July 31, 2003.
toll skippers would be able to spread paying their past-due tolls
and related fines over six months; those who owe $2,500 or more
can go up to 12 months.

Internet access can call 630-241-6800 ext. 4409 to receive an application
in the mail.
Daily Herald reported that around 20,000 people are eligible
to take part in the plan.
