    Yep, discount with ez pass. I believe you can register the pass with your plate(s), then no pass necessary in the car.

    Great way to hide the actual toll paid from the consumer, especially with auto-refill.

    Take a look next time you do a bridge/tunnel. Try and find the price posted...typically only in the cash lanes and verrrry small signs.

    And the EZ pass "discount"?
    Only available in your state of residence. All the other money grubbing lil state govs basically said screw the out of state drivers.

    Hey, I like the convenience, but the structure is annoying.

    Here you go: EZPass FAQs
    Toll-by-Plate works by allowing all motorists to travel through Toll-by-Plate locations without stopping to pay, even those who do not have an E-ZPass tag.
    • With an E-ZPass tag - Drivers with a valid E-ZPass tag in their vehicle have their tolls automatically deducted from their E-ZPass account and, as long as their account is in good standing, they do not receive Toll Bills. They also pay a lower toll rate than customers who do not have a tag. To avoid any problems, customers should make sure their license plate is on their account and for maximum convenience the auto-pay feature is recommended.
    • No E-ZPass tag - Drivers without a valid E-ZPass tag in their vehicle are mailed a bill for their tolls, usually within 30 days. A photo of the vehicle’s license plate is taken at the time of the transaction and the plate number is used to obtain the vehicle’s registered owner information from the state motor vehicle office. This is the address typically used to mail your Toll Bill, however in some cases the bill may be mailed to an updated address provided by the United States Postal Service or to a customer-provided address.
