Angry Texas tollways

A few weeks ago I received a letter from the Texas toll stating that I owe money. I asked my wife if she remembers driving on this highway because I sure in the hell did not remember. A few weeks later I got another peter and a fuzzy dark picture of my car. I studied the picture and date again then it hit me. I did travel on that highway about a year ago now and here is where it gets tricky. I took my car for a tune on a trailer and you can make my trailer out in the picture. Can they double charge me? And for that matter possibly even triple charge me? Here is the run down, truck, car (on a trailer), and the trailer. I will call the Texas toll authority on Monday for clarification.

In Virginia they have different charges for trailers ... not sure how they would know what you paid for the trailer or not ... it would seem theyare the ones at fault.

Here in Texas the toll charge is higher for more than two axles. I don't think the charge is double but it is more than just a single two axle vehicle.

Yep I paid for the truck and trailer. But they got a picture of my camaro on the trailer, and they are trying to charge me.

Was there a booth or was it one of those automatic things ... I'm assuming the latter.

We don't have toll booths in Texas anymore...it's all done with cameras and billing if you don't have a tolltag.

It was the auto, @ envy I'm with you I think they will remove it without a problem. I was just shocked that I got the bill and a year later at that.
