Ill. Tollway Trying Wall of Shame for Scofflaws

ILLINOIS (AP)-- The Illinois Tollway is taking a new approach in its battle to get drivers who repeatedly skip tolls to pay up.

The state agency says it will publicly out people who rack up more than $1,000 in unpaid tolls and fines by posting their names on its website.

Spokeswoman Wendy Abrams says the list is being compiled and should be up before the end of the week.

That step has been sanctioned by a law that Gov. Pat Quinn signed Tuesday.

The agency depends on tolls to maintain its 286-mile network of interstate roadways in northern Illinois.

Abrams says it has a responsibility to try to collect every penny.
