Default Finally got me.....

Well, I'm just relaxing in my apartment last night after quite a long day at work. My dad calls me at about 1030 just to check up on me and let me know my mail situation back home. He says he got a bit nosy and decided to open one particular piece of my mail (Thanks, Dad) that was from the Illinois Tollway Authority. Inside the envelope sat a picture of the rear of my car passing through a toll near the Tollway (I-355). Now, I heard this and busted out laughing because it states that they've caught me for 5 tolls and I couldn't do anything but laugh because I know they're all true. It always works out that I don't have any change going through that particular toll to get on 355, there'* nothing else I can do. Besides, the stupid thing never works anyways. I throw change in and it never registers. Now I have to pay $105, but my dad says all I have to do is call them, explain myself in a convincing manner, and they'll reduce that for me. Moral of the story: DON'T RUN TOLLS, IT MAKES THE GOVERNMENT CRY!.

Get one of those license plate cover things, that it makes the tag scrambled from a high angle. Yet looks perfectly normal otherwise. They are like $20 or something.

That would be a feasible solution except I'm not on the tollway often enough to make it of any use to me. I'd end up using it once every 3-4 months, if that.

One time a group of us went to a concert at Rosemont Horizon in Rosemont, IL and we all spent our money on drinks, souvenirs, etc and couldn't even scrape up enough for the toll on the way home. They let us sign a form and sent us a bill for the 45 cents or whatever it was. It was too funny.

It was about 2 am and there were some that were waiting behind us. I had to get out and write down the tag number and fill out the form and sign it.
