What happens if you don’t pay a toll?


Missing a toll isn’t a big deal, but if left unpaid, it can become one. It’s best to act quickly before time and money add up. Here’s what happens if you don’t pay for your missed toll*:

  • Missed toll (within 5 days of trip) - $1.50 fee
  • First invoice (6-35 days after trip) - $12.50 fee
  • Second invoice (45-74 days after trip) - $25.00 fee
  • Collections (90+ days after trip) - $100.00 fee
  • Court (180+ days after trip) - $100, plus court fees and civil penalties set by Virginia law

*As the operator, we don’t and cannot, by law, profit from administrative fees and civil penalties related to toll enforcement. Any administrative fees assessed for collection purposes are outlined by Virginia law and judges enforce the Virginia code and impose civil penalties.
