Default EZPass

When NH made the decision to turn to EZPass the company told the legislature that they will collect more money than they have in the past because it requires less staff to collect, there will be less violators and instead of 50% token discount there will be a 33% discount.

Years later, we have the same number of token takers, collecting less money as many people are taking the back roads, and the adminstration fee to run the program is astronomical. There was a WSJ article that investigates the enormous salaries of the company's directers and managers. I think NJ tried to sue the company and for some unknown clause(s) in the contract between the state and the EZPass company it failed in court.

The only people that are happy about EZPass is the EZPass owners and direcotrs.
