For bridge toll violators, penalty is vehicle registration hold

October 2, 2012

By Staff

The state Department of Licensing placed holds on registration renewals for about 7,900 vehicles after owners ignored notices for unpaid bridge tolls.

Violators should start to receive notices about unpaid tolls and registration holds in the days ahead. Department of Licensing officials said violators cannot renew registrations until they pay all tolls, accrued fees and penalties.

The holds affect toll violators on the state Route 520 and Tacoma Narrows bridges.

Owners with registrations set to expire in December should receive the initial renewal notices from the Department of Licensing with holds resulting from unpaid civil penalties.

Holds go into effect after other attempts to collect tolls have been exhausted.
