NTTA dropping administrative fees

Posted: Updated:

The NTTA is changing the way it charges late-paying drivers. It's dropping the pricey administrative fees which can add hundreds or even thousands of dollars to bills.

They will soon be minimized to $10 on the first late notice, $25 on the second.

The NTTA says the change is due in part to public criticism and state legislation.

Drivers with outstanding fees say they're grateful for the changes.

" I think it makes it more approachable. Some folks felt like they kind of ignored it for awhile then turned around and all of a sudden it was a large amount. Now, that amount will increase steadily, instead of per toll, it will be per invoice," said NTTA Spokesman Michael Rey.

"I think it's fair for people to have to own up to what they owe, that's why I'm here, I can't get away with it forever and I shouldn't have gotten away with it this long," said Ashley McFarland who owed $300 dollars in late tolls.

Drivers who don't want a Toll Tag can opt for a Starter Toll Tag. It's $20 and deducts fees every time the car goes through a toll.
