Summary of Civil/Criminal Penalties
Failure to pay the proper toll on a toll facility is a violation of O.C.G.A. § 32-10-64 (c) (1). In such event, the registered owner of the vehicle will be liable to make prompt payment to the State Road and Tollway Authority (SRTA) of the proper toll and an administrative fee of $25.00 per violation to recover the cost of collecting the toll.
Failure to make payment of the proper toll and the administrative fee, per violation, will result in SRTA referring this matter to a collections agency and/or the Attorney General, which will move to obtain an Order against you from the Office of State Administrative Hearings (OSAH). If OSAH determines that violations of O.C.G.A. § 32-10-64(c)(1) occurred, OSAH will issue an Order against you and you will be liable for the tolls and administrative fees as set forth above but also an additional a civil penalty of up to $70.00 per violation.
Your vehicle registration WILL be suspended if payment of all tolls, administrative fees and civil penalties, which can be up to $95.50 for each violation, is not received by SRTA within 30 days following the judgment by OSAH.
SRTA may also report the bad debt to the credit bureaus.
