Missed a toll? Don't panic! Here's what to do.

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. (WLS) -- In Thursday's "What's Driving You Crazy," ABC 7 Chicago's Roz Varon got a voicemail from James, who needed help paying a toll online.

He was driving to Detroit and didn't have an I-PASS. He was very worried he would get a fine.

Ever since the tollway went "cashless" Varon said she gets more questions about that than anything else.

If you're one of those drivers who only uses the Tollway occasionally, and you don't have an I-PASS, there's another option: You can set up a Pay-By-Plate account.
