Do Toll Tags Really Save You Money?

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in Defensive Driving Tips

Don’t you hate it when you have to stop to pay a toll? Of course you do! Not only do you have to pay to drive on a road that you have to travel on, but you also have to stop and waste valuable time to pay that toll. Sure, if you only have to deal with a toll road every few months when you travel out of town it is no big deal. However, if you are one of the thousands of Texans that rely on toll roads to get to and from work every day it is another story. Those tolls can really add up, not to mention to vast amount of time being wasted.

What if there was an easier way?

Luckily, there is. The state has created a handy little item called a TollTag. The TollTag is applied to your windshield. When you pass a toll booth, it is electronically scanned and the toll is deducted from your prepaid account. You can set up your TollTag account online to have the funds automatically deducted from a credit card or checking account. Yippee! No more digging for change!

What does this mean for me?

First off, it means you don’t have to stop to pay a toll. But there is even more of an inventive. It will also save you money. In fact, you can save as much as 50% off the price that a cash customer has to pay. Yes, you read that right, 50%. That is a pretty dramatic discount for simply having a TollTag on your car. However, not all toll roads will offer this substantial of a discount. Each road varies in their pricing structure, but you will save at least 10% by having the TollTag, with the average savings being about 25%. If you have to frequent several different tolls a day, these savings can really add up.

Why would they do that?

The state offers such a substantial discount because when you have a TollTag they are guaranteed to get paid. Otherwise, they risk drivers skipping out on the tolls altogether. So TollTags really are a win-win for everyone involved. And think about how much time you will save by not having to stop at those toll booths anymore.
