OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The cost for evading tolls on Oklahoma roads is going down.
Gov. Mary Fallin signed a bill on Tuesday that reduces the fine for second and subsequent toll violations to a flat $25 fee. Under current law, the penalty is $25 for the first violation, $50 for a
second violation and $75 for a third violation.
A spokesman for the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority says the agency asked for the fine reduction, saying it would foster a more positive customer experience, especially while trying to settle
outstanding violations. OTA officials say they hope the change also will encourage more drivers to use the PikePass system.
