Not much of a problem. Basically, if you go through a toll booth and
the EZ Pass registers you, they just charge your account. If it does
not register you, then they will, if possible, send you a bill. They
missed me once on the Garden State parkway. Since they had no EZ Pass
record of my going through the toll gate in question, it was obvious
they weren't going to charge me for that toll booth.

I wrote them that I had had my EZ Pass transponder, had been
registered at 3 other exits at about the same time that day, and sent
them a check for 35 cents for the missed toll booth. Never heard
back. And I checked my statement and they had, indeed, not charged me
for the missed toll booth.
