A new law will suspend the vehicle registration of any Pennsylvania motorist who has any outstanding tolls and fees totaling $500 or more or if a driver has six or more separate instances of violation.
Before the law takes effect on Friday, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission is running a partial amnesty program. Any toll violations that are newer than 60 days can be settled by paying in full the outstanding toll amount, all other fees, according to a recent release, will be forgiven. Toll violations older than 60 days that have been referred to collections may be settled by paying in full the outstanding toll amount and a portion of the outstanding fees.
To take advantage of the amnesty program, call 1-877-PENNPASS (1-877-736-6727). If you think you may be a violator, click here, you will need your license plate number to complete the look up.
