NARROWS BRIDGE: Fix costly tolling mistakes

I am writing to request help in forcing the Narrows Bridge tolling authority to fix the problem: transponders purchased in the last three months don’t work, and the manual matching of license plates to accounts produces errors (I know I’m not the only one with an undeserved $52 infraction notice). And we’ve lost tens of thousands of dollars in tolls, since I doubt I’m the only one that has not been charged at all for many of the trips made in the last three months.

Let’s collect the money from whoever made the decision to force people to buy transponders that don’t work.
