Toll Cheaters Beware

Toll cheaters consider this fair warning. The Illinois State Toll Highway Authority unanimously approved a three-year, $38 million contract with a private firm to catch toll scofflaws.

The toll authority expects to recover most of the roughly $7 million in revenue it lost annually over the last few years. The deal will reportedly retrieve lost revenue, plus generate more money through $20 and $70 fines for each violation.

Toll way officials say they decided to contract out the enforcement job because the authority is short-staffed in that department.
