Interstate Toll Fines – help !!

By Affirmative Action Man 9 October 2009 23

I have just been to Melbourne & I’m sure I went on some toll roads without paying.   No doubt they will track me down & send me a bill.

My car has ACT plates so what happens if I ignore it ?


What’s Your opinion?

Wasn’t it one of those two roads that had the alternate route blocked to force people to use the new road a few years ago?

Close. It was actually the Lane Cove Tunnel which youre thinking about, I believe. From memory the issue was more to do with the traffic lights giving higher priority to toll-road traffic. From a quick read of the wiki article, it appears there was some controversy over the installation of a bus lane on the non-toll road, which seems to make sense as you dont really want buses to stop on an ‘express’ tollroad anyway.

Another thing to remember, is that you dont HAVE to use a toll road. Toll roads such as Eastlink or the M7, didnt replace existing roads, they added a different route with more convenience and were paid for by a private business, not your (their) tax dollars. If youre using a GPS and dont wish to pay tolls in an interstate city, just tell it not to use toll roads and youll be set.

If your travelling to Sydney and paying on the net, go to ROMA.COM, cover yourself for a month, as I only put down the time I expected to be away, I stayed longer, I recieved a notice for payment for return
