A partial toll amnesty program will end at 7 p.m. Friday.

Time is running out for motorists who have outstanding toll violations with the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

A partial toll amnesty program ends at 7 p.m. Friday.

Toll bills and violations newer than 60 days can be settled by paying the outstanding toll amount in full and other fees will be forgiven. Violations older than 60 days may be paid in full with a portion of the outstanding fees forgiven.

The turnpike commission says 1,645 of its top toll scofflaws have taken advantage of the program since it began on July 5. Chronic violators face having their registrations suspended.

Violators can pay their told by calling 877-736-6727.
