PA Turnpike: Commercial Scofflaws Owe $1.5M
The Pennsylvania Turnpike is trying to shame trucking firms and other commercial haulers into paying more than $1.5 million in unpaid tolls.
One firm, Green Coast Logistics of South Plainfield, New Jersey, owes the bulk of that money, more than $678,000 stemming from more than 7,000 violations.
The violations occur when vehicles drive through EZPass lanes and don't have an electronic toll-paying device attached -- or don't have enough money in their EZPass account to cover the tolls.
The Turnpike commission has listed the top 24 commercial scofflaws, who owe more than $1.5 million stemming from thousands of violations.
Ten of the top 24 are from New Jersey, and eight are from Pennsylvania.
The rest are from Virginia, Ohio, Illinois and -- surprisingly -- Arizona.
Green Coast hasn't commented.
