What is a Toll Violation?
Pursuant to the Texas Transportation Code, Chapter 284, the vehicle owner or
renter of record (not necessarily the driver) of a vehicle that passes through a toll
facility is responsible for payment of all tolls. Failure to pay tolls is against the law
and results in a violation invoice and/or referral to a collection firm. Toll
violations may also result in issuance of a traffic citation, independent of an
invoice, which carries a significant fine plus court costs.

Toll Violation Events
When you access a toll road, payment is expected at the time of the transaction.
To make payment for a toll violation event which has not yet been invoiced to you,
please call 281-875-3279 to pay by credit card. Payment may also be made by US check
or money order at one of our
EZ TAG Store locations, or by mail to the address below.
Because toll payment is due at the time of the transaction, payment for a toll violation event will only be accepted as a one-time courtesy
and is intended for drivers who have accidentally entered the toll road without the proper payment method. All future toll transactions
will be processed as part of a Toll Violation Invoice if payment is not received at the time of the transaction, per Texas Transportation Code, Chapter 284.
