No SunPass? No problem. The Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) TOLL-BY-PLATE program has you covered.
TOLL-BY-PLATE is a toll collection method that takes a photo of a vehicle’s license plate as it travels through an FDOT tolling location. It then mails a monthly bill for the tolls, plus a $2.50 administrative charge, to the registered owner of the vehicle. So just drive!
The Florida DOT’s TOLL-BY-PLATE program is available on Florida’s Turnpike in Miami-Dade, the Mid-Bay Connector in Niceville, and on the Selmon Expressway and the I-4 Connector in Tampa, where all-electronic, no-cash tolling is in effect. In the spring of 2014, it will be available on the Veterans Expressway/Toll 589 in the Tampa Bay area and on the Sawgrass Expressway/Toll 869 west of Fort Lauderdale.
The Miami-Dade Expressway Authority (MDX) has its own toll-by-plate program. Please visit their website for information and to pay tolls.
