Complaint Review: Illinois Tollway
Illinois Tollway Highway Robbery Lisle, Illinois
I requested a hearing by mail and sent a letter presenting my case and offered to pay the $6.50 in toll fines.This was to no avail and I received the Hearing Officer's Final Order to pay the $146.50 or it could result in an additional $50 fine per violation -$496.50! Talk about extortion!!! Apparently, I am not alone in this outrage- just search "Illinois Tollway scam" on the internet and see all the documented "ripoff/scam" experiences people have had with the Illinois tollway system. I'm just a victim of a long ongoing, hot mess! I will also be sending a letter to the Illinois Tollway Inspector General's office which was created to "maintain the public's trust in administration and operation of the Illinois tollway." Ha, that's a good one!
For fear of having my vehicle registration/driver's license suspended, I will pay the $146.50. To make matters worse, I was let go from my job when I returned from vacation and have had to ask family members for monetary assistance.
Something needs to be done about these IPass/IL tollway scams...things are just not right here:(
