MDTA Extends Toll Fee Grace Period 2 Weeks, Setting New Dec. 15 Deadline

In two weeks, unpaid tolls for Maryland drivers are going to get a lot more expensive.

Maryland Transportation Authority’s board of directors voted to extend the grace period enacted back in February.

On December 15, MDTA will begin assessing a $25 fee per toll costing customers hundreds— if not thousands of dollars.

Traffic was flowing smoothly through the Fort McHenry Tunnel toll booths, but just on the other side of the highway, what drivers don’t see, is a major back up.

The lines packed out with customers extend beyond the wall of the E-ZPass Customer Service Center in Baltimore Wednesday.

Some customers were bundled up for the long wait with comfortable shoes, others with lawn chairs.

This was still not enough to calm frustrations.
