The North Texas Tollway Authority has updated its Top Toll Violator webpage containing the names of individuals who owe 100 or more outstanding tolls. Since the launch of the webpage on July 11, approximately 655 people have paid their outstanding debt in full or have entered into payment arrangements. The NTTA is also in discussions with a number of others.

To ensure payment from all toll road users, the NTTA is offering a lump sum payment option and an extended payment plan to those on the list. Under both plans, the violator must open a TollTag account for future tolls and keep the account in good standing.
“The NTTA owes it to the 92 percent of customers who pay their tolls on time, every time, to collect all tolls owed when someone chooses to use the toll roads,” said Gerry Carrigan, NTTA executive director. “We will accept no payment that doesn’t fully collect every past due toll at the highest ZipCash rate and a portion of the accumulated delinquent fees.”
The Top Toll Violators list provides the public with a way to easily determine if they owe a significant debt to the NTTA and notifies them that they may be subject to collections lawsuits and other enforcement action by the NTTA. Toll violator names are removed from the list when payment is made in full or when a violator enters into a payment arrangement. Failure to maintain payments or keep their TollTag account in good standing will result in the violator’s name being reinstated to the list and also subject the violator to further enforcement action – civil lawsuits and JP Court for the full amount owed, including all fees and fines – should they default on payment.
The webpage is part of a coordinated effort by the NTTA to ensure that all users of NTTA highways pay for that usage. Those on the Top Toll Violators list have more than 100 outstanding tolls and have refused to pay invoices over at least 180 days.
If violators have questions about their listing on the Top Toll Violators list, their account or other matters relating to payment for their use of NTTA roads, they should contact the NTTA customer service center at (972) 818-6882.
