Grace Period For Outstanding MTA Tolls To End This Month
BALTIMORE COUNTY - The grace period for resolving outstanding video tolls will end this month, according to the Maryland Transportation Authority (MTA).
According to the MTA, the grace period will end on November 30 at 11:59 p.m.
The MTA said that the nine-month civil penalty waiver grace period has allowed residents to develop payment plans, resolve outstanding tolls, and switch to E-ZPass to avoid future outstanding tolls.
The MTA estimates that 724,000 drivers have had approximately $119 million in outstanding tolls waived.
The transit authority said that some people have continually deferred payment on their outstanding tolls and have accrued additional unpaid fines during the grace period for their initial penalty.
According to the MTA, 1.3 million customers still need to pay their outstanding tolls.
The agency has sent “ACT NOW” letters to every customer with an outstanding balance and has asked them to go online and pay any remaining money owed.
The MDTA urges anyone with an outstanding toll debt to take advantage of the last remnants of the grace period.
Standard operations for civil penalties, collections, and vehicle registration suspension enforcement will resume on December 1, transit authorities said.
