Time to pay up or face Good to Go! toll fees and penalties
Have you checked your Good to Go account or searched those piles of mail in your house for a forgotten toll bill? That grace period ended Wednesday.
Good to Go! stopped charging late fees and civil penalties for unpaid toll bills in June of 2021.

It was a way to ease the financial pain for users during the pandemic, and the system was getting a top to bottom upgrade, including a new website.
If you haven’t been paying your toll bills, you could be in for a significant shock. Not only do you have to pay all those unpaid tolls, but if they are late, you will face a $5 late fee. If you blow that off, you will be facing a $40 civil penalty, and that $40 applies to every unpaid toll.
That can add up really quickly.
If you fail to pay those civil penalties, a hold will be placed on your registration, meaning you won’t be able to get your new tabs until you settle your bill.
If you’re in this situation, you can always hit up the Good to Go! department and take advantage of the one-time fee and penalty forgiveness program. You still have to pay all your unpaid tolls, but you can get the rest wiped away.
If you are a pay-by-mail driver, you can also save money retroactively. All you need to do is set up a Good to Go! account and those two extra dollars in tolls for using pay by mail will be reduced to $0.25. That’s a $1.75 savings per toll.
