Couldn't agree more. For those of us who can afford it, toll lanes are great. For everyone else, who tend to be the people for whom a better commute would actually make an existential difference, they're another strike against. Take from the poor, give to the wealthy.

I call them the King's Highway. Some are over $1 a mile, in other words, more than 1st class jet aircraft tickets. I can tell you FasTrak does not server champagne from personal experience.

I will go to the main EZPass store in Raleigh, NC and I understand they have instruments which determines the best placement. If still a problem, I may have to get an external transponder. Will keep the forum updated.

I do have a heated windshield which may account for some of my signal reception woes Good luck with your EZPass transponder.

I went to the main EZPass store in Raleigh, NC yesterday and they used an instrument which determines the best placement. The transponders did not work at all when placed in the dotted area. It is the solar glass which prevents it. I had to get an external transponder. Will keep the forum updated how this works as I am driving towards Virginia and DC soon.

they had to use these windshields as the front of the car uses radar to control speed and space between cars in front of you..

the good news is (and I just confirmed this with CHP), if you have speed control set and a radar gun tries to measure your speed they cant determine what it is.....

Perhaps it is different in Canada, but I got a speeding ticket with laser. I had the cruise set at 120 and the radar clocked me at 120.

Hi there...
I wanted to see if you are still experiencing the issues coming in and. Out of the Greenway? Im seeing it work about 1/2 of the time, but still always drive in the credit card lane
9when gates are down) just in case. Thought today I should start tracking how often the transponder works, and share that info with them. Im looking for you, but only i-pace sightings have been in San Francisco and Burlingame, CA. Ill throw a party when I see one in the DMV!!!
