How to Dispute a New Jersey Turnpike Toll Ticket

When it comes to toll roads, the entire state of New Jersey uses the EZ-Pass system, including on the NJ Turnpike. The EZ-Pass system combines two elements, a reader and a small signal-emitting box that sticks to the inside of your windshield.

However, there have been an increased number of incorrect toll tickets distributed over the NJ turnpike and other EZ-Pass toll locations. This has been blamed on old tags and old systems, but the fact is that people are getting charged hundreds to thousands of dollars in tolls that should have been paid or during times when they weren't even driving.

If you are the victim of an incorrect violation charge, you can dispute the and DoNotPay can help you present a strong legal case against being charged.

How to Pay Tolls in New Jersey

The best way to handle your tolls in New Jersey is to have an NJ Easy-Pass and keep it topped up or connected to a live credit card. While this will require regular auditing of tolls may be required. But if you pass through a toll without an EZ-Pass and need to pay the toll violation, know that New Jersey uses the Toll-by-Mail solution. It's clever, but the mail doesn't always know how to reach you. There may be several toll messages all sent to your previous physical address.

If you don't get a toll letter addressed to you, you may need to go through the EZ-Pass service which keeps a record of run-through tolls and offers built-in payment plans to help you keep up with any old expenses that you plan to pay instead of disputing. Continue with your EZ-Pass account until they ask for payment or never choose to pursue it.

How to Avoid an Accidental Toll Violation

The best way to dispute an NJ turnpike toll ticket is to not get the ticket in the first place. EZ-Pass makes A LOT of mistakes, but you can minimize the risk with a few easy steps.

  1. Keep your EZ-Pass topped up and placed in your windshield.
  2. Have Your EZ-Pass replaced every two to five years.
  3. Make sure your EZ-Pass credit card has not expired.
  4. Do not obscure your EZ-Pass in the windshield.
  5. Keep GPS records of your travels to prove when you did and did not take the turnpike.

The last step is essential for disputing future toll tickets. If EZ-Pass is charging you for NJ turnpike toll tickets when you weren't on the turnpike - or your pass should have paid on time - you have protection against false charges.
