Toll violations. Relocates Title 46.2 (Motor Vehicles) provisions relating to driving a motor vehicle from an establishment where motor fuel is dispensed into the vehicle's tank without payment, and smoking in proximity to gas pumps, from their current location in Article 1.1 (Toll Violations and Enforcement) of Chapter 8 to a more logical placement in Chapter 1 (General Provisions). The bill combines Code sections relating to electronic toll facilities. The bill requires a court to consider extenuating circumstances in assessing civil penalties for toll violations, which have been updated to reflect the technological advancements in collecting tolls. The bill makes the procedure for contesting toll violations via affidavit on toll facilities uniform. Read the Bill »
