If you’ve recently traveled on a toll road, bridge, or tunnel in Florida, you may be wondering how to check if you owe any tolls. In this article, we’ll explain the different ways you can check for outstanding tolls in the state of Florida.
One of the easiest ways to check for outstanding tolls in Florida is to use the SunPass website. SunPass is a prepaid electronic toll collection system that is used on most of the toll roads, bridges, and tunnels in the state. If you have a SunPass account, you can log in to your account online and view your account balance, transaction history, and any toll violations or fees that you may owe.
To check for outstanding tolls on the SunPass website, follow these steps:
- Go to the SunPass website (www.sunpass.com) and click on the “Log In” button in the top right corner of the page.
- Enter your SunPass account number and password, then click “Log In.”
- Once you’re logged in to your account, click on the “Account Summary” tab to view your account balance and transaction history.
- If you have any outstanding tolls or fees, they will be listed on this page. You can view the details of each toll or fee by clicking on the “View Details” button next to the item.
- If you see any tolls or fees that you don’t recognize, you can click on the “Dispute” button to dispute the charge. You will need to provide documentation to support your dispute.
If you don’t have a SunPass account or you don’t remember your account number or password, you can still check for outstanding tolls in Florida. Here are a few other options:
- Florida’s Toll-By-Plate system: If you don’t have a SunPass account, you may have been charged for your tolls through Florida’s Toll-By-Plate system. This system uses cameras to capture images of your license plate as you pass through a toll plaza, and you will receive a bill in the mail for the tolls you owe. To check for outstanding tolls through Toll-By-Plate, you can visit the Florida’s Turnpike website (www.floridasturnpike.com) and click on the “Toll-By-Plate” tab. From there, you can enter your license plate number and search for any outstanding tolls or fees.
- Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT): If you are unable to find your outstanding tolls through either of the above methods, you can contact FDOT directly. FDOT is responsible for the maintenance and operation of Florida’s toll roads, and they can provide you with information on any outstanding tolls or fees that you may owe. You can contact FDOT by phone or email, or you can visit their website (www.fdot.gov) and click on the “Contact Us” link at the bottom of the page.
If you do owe tolls in Florida, it’s important to pay them as soon as possible to avoid any additional fees or penalties. Most tolls in Florida can be paid online or by phone, or you can mail a check or money order to the address listed on your bill.
If you are unable to pay your tolls due to financial hardship, you may be able to set up a payment plan or request a hardship waiver. To learn more about these options, you can contact SunPass customer service or FDOT.
