Tollway authority to collect unpaid fines

The Illinois Tollway Authority is trying to collect millions of dollars in unpaid fines going back to the summer of 2006.

An estimated 530,000 notices have been mailed by the toll authority over the last six months. And people are flooding the agency with phone calls.

The toll authority is going after toll scofflaws to recoup lost revenue. The agency was criticized in a state auditor's report released last fall for not collecting the fines.
