What happens if you're in the wrong toll lane?

February 24, 2011 3:44:39 AM PST
If you mistakenly find yourself in an unattended lane or in a dedicated I-PASS lane, you must continue forward for safety reasons. You cannot back-up at any time as it is unsafe.

Be sure to go online or pay by mail within the 7-day grace period.

The Illinois Tollway recommends drivers have the following information available:

- Name of registered vehicle owner
- Plate State/Number/Type (specialty plates must be identified)
- Unpaid Toll: Location/Plaza/Date/Time

The Illinois Tollway tries to share this information with customers in a variety of ways including on its Web site www.illinoistollway.com, in monthly e-newsletters and also on signs posted at a number of toll plazas throughout the Tollway system.
