The North Texas Tollway Authority webpage containing the names of individuals who owe 100 or more outstanding tolls is now live. The Top Toll Violators list provides the public with a way to easily determine if they owe a significant debt to the NTTA and puts them on notice that they may be subject to collections lawsuits and other enforcement action by the NTTA.
The webpage is part of a coordinated effort by the NTTA to ensure that all users of NTTA highways pay for that usage. The NTTA is funded by user fees—tolls—and not taxes. Those on the Top Toll Violators list have more than 100 outstanding tolls and have refused to pay invoices over at least 180 days. The Top Toll Violators list on NTTA.org includes the names, cities, zip codes, amounts owed and number of unpaid transactions by violators in a searchable PDF. If customers 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.
The NTTA’s pay-by-mail system begins when a motorist without a TollTag travels through designated tolling points and a digital image of the vehicle’s license plate is captured. A ZipCash invoice for the toll payment is sent to the registered owner of the vehicle. ZipCash rates are 50 percent higher than TollTag rates. Failure to pay a ZipCash bill results in additional fees to counter the cost of collection. Customers who refuse to pay a ZipCash invoice are subject to a criminal citation and could be required to appear in court. In June, the NTTA Board also authorized the Authority to file civil lawsuits against repeat toll violators.
All NTTA customers are encouraged to periodically review their billing information to make sure it is current and accurate with the NTTA and the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles.
