Traffic violations for New Jersey toll skipper

It would take an extremely deft criminal to evade tolls numbering in the many thousands of dollars without being caught. To accumulate that many toll violations, the crimes would have had to occurred over a number of years of heavy driving. It seems impossible, but a recent case in New Jersey involves allegations of exactly that. Supposedly, one man's traffic violations have piled up so much that he owes nearly $88,000. 

An alleged toll evasion has resulted in significant charges for the man. Apparently, he was caught by authorities driving through the E-ZPass on the George Washington Bridge on July 26. Police arrested the 60-year-old after a records check uncovered significant unpaid tolls. 

The man had allegedly accrued unpaid tolls from both Port Authority and New Jersey Turnpike highways. Records indicated that he owed $40,700 to Port Authority and an additional $47,000 to the New Jersey Turnpike tolls. The man was charged with several crimes, including toll evasion, theft of service and a traffic violation after police uncovered the records.

The New Jersey driver is likely working alongside his legal counsel to prepare a criminal defense regarding the traffic violations and criminal charges. Perhaps the exorbitant fees were incorrectly assigned to him by a technical glitch, or perhaps it is a case of mistaken identity. The man will have to defend his case in the court system for any hopes of beating the charges. Individuals facing similar charges have the same right to defend themselves against criminal charges. Many people choose to enlist the services of a skilled criminal defense attorney for help in building a strong defense to their case.
