The worst toll violator in North Texas has finally agreed to pay up. At least partially.
A western extension of the President George Bush Turnpike in North Texas opened on Monday morning, connecting Interstate-30 and Interstate-20 in the Grand Prairie area.
Monday morning’s commute will soon be easier for drivers heading north or south between I-20 and I-30.
It’s official; the top toll violators in Texas will now be banned from North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) roads.
Since July the North Texas Tollway Authority’s list of scofflaws with outstanding toll debts has grown by about 10,000 people.
Last month, the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) posted an online list of the states top violators and while hundreds of people paid up the majority of scofflaws are still wanted.
The North Texas Transit Authority’s plan for public shame seems to be working.
The NTTA has posted a list online featuring the top toll violators, and some of them owe more money than most people make in a year. There are 22 people who have bills topping six figures.
The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is investigating a believed hit and run accident that left a North Texas man dead.
It was an outcry that forced a major state agency to radically change their plans. Disgruntled residents in one Fort Worth area kept shouting until the NTTA finally heard them.
A tollway extension in the Dallas area has opened as a new east-side link to Interstate-30.
A construction crane collapsed Tuesday night at a work site along Interstate-20 in Grand Prairie, but no injuries have been reported.
