With the beginning of the new year comes another increase in tolls on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, along with a hefty surcharge on non-EZ-Pass users. The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission approved a 6-per-cent increase for EZ-Pass users, as well for those without passes in the “Toll by Plate” program. Under that program, high speed cameras capture license plate images as vehicles pass by; the registered owner then receives an invoice for trips made through the tolling point.
