MTA Busts Area Man for allegedly racking up over 50,000 tolls
Seems like a man’s luck has finally run out. Tolls are definitely a nuisance we wish we could do without, but one man took that aversion to the extreme. NBC says an undefeated driver has racked up $ 50,000 in unpaid tolls over the past four years. The MTA also tried to reach him about the alleged infractions, but he never bothered to respond. While he’s by no means a hero, you almost have to admire his glaring nerve.
NBC says most of the removed tolls occurred on the RFK and Bronx Whitestone bridges. MTA officials finally caught up with their man on Friday, even though he was not in his Nissan Altima when they arrested him. Unfortunately, it was his family who were in the vehicle instead. These people were going to have a rather unpleasant surprise.
This guy got over 400 reviews and the last 398 of them said we add the fee, we suspend your check-in, you better not drive on bridges and he kept doing it.
Officials say no matter how many times he’s been given notices and threatened with extra charges, he’s continued to ignore them and face more tolls. Now he has been charged with driving with a suspended license and is due in court on October 21. Officials say he never bothered to get an EZ Pass during that time.
Last June, police arrested a 55-year-old man in Brentwood, NY on Tuesday after failing to report a turn. After further investigation, authorities discovered that the man had suffered 99 license suspensions. You might be wondering how a person gets their license withdrawn so often? A police spokeswoman says suspensions occur after the driver fails to pay the fines or appear in court to answer the charges. Thus, an unpaid summons would result in another suspension. Just one more, and he’ll have hit triple-digit suspensions.
What about that man from Pennsylvania? Due to multiple violations, his license was suspended for the next 55 years. He won’t be driving until 2076, if he’s still alive then?
