EZ Pass overcharging

I have the EZ pass mounted to the left winglet on my LT. It reads it everytime. The issue I have is that the system overcharges me. It doesn't do it everytime, and there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to why it does it.

I called EZ pass last month when I got my online statement, they siad that I needed to get my transponder checked, and they would look over the records of the past few months an credit our account, which they did.

I got my statement this month, and the same thing is happening. Yesterday I went to one of the "service centers" to have the transponder checked. There they told me the reason I get overcharged is that sometimes motorcycle tires bounce as you go through the toll, so it charges you for more axles. The "fix" is to call them once a month or so and have them credit the accoun!!

THe normal charge for the tolls I go through everyday is 53 cents, I have been charged as much as $2.15 for this toll. The amount varies.

Anyone else have this problem? If you haven't checked your account, you may want to.

Re: EZ Pass overcharging

No problems in NY. Actually, I saved the tow truck driver some scatch when the system read my EZ pass on the way to the Dealer after I broke down. The attendant simply waved us though. I got ding'd for the toll at motorcycle rate.

FWIW, I've had it on two different bikes for the past seven years. No issues. I would ask for a new tag.

Also, my wheels never bounce through a toll booth. The ez pass sensors from NY to VA are over head so bouncy wheels have no effect.

Re: EZ Pass overcharging

Same here. Looked at my statement after reading your post and have never been overcharged.
