All-Electronic Tolling ... Incurring a Toll

All Turnpike tolls are collected electronically between Exit 53 and Exit 1 and at Milepost 0X, from south of Ft. Lauderdale to Miami and Homestead, on the Sawgrass Expressway located west of Fort Lauderdale, and on the Veterans Expressway and the I-4 Connector in Tampa. Motorists use either SunPass or TOLL-BY-PLATE, and everyone pays tolls without having to stop.

SunPass uses credit-card-size electronic devices, called SunPass transponders, which attach to the inside of a car's windshield. When a car equipped with SunPass goes through a tolling location, the transponder sends a signal and the toll is deducted from the customer’s account. SunPass customers always pay the lowest toll rates available.

If you are not a SunPass customer and encounter an all-electronic tolling location, don’t worry; you will automatically become a Turnpike TOLL-BY-PLATE customer. The tolling cameras will take a photo of the vehicle’s license plate and a monthly bill for the tolls, plus a $2.50 administrative charge, will be mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle.

Keep in mind that you can still use cash to pay tolls on Florida’s Turnpike from north of I-595 in Ft. Lauderdale to the I-75 interchange in Wildwood.
