New Hampshire officials are giving E-ZPass violators facing license suspensions a pass – at least until a new law takes effect in January.
Officials estimate 1,700 drivers have gotten a break from the state’s decision to hold off on the punitive action.
The new law targets vehicle registrations instead of driving privileges for drivers who fail to take care of violations. Under current law, violators could have their driver’s license and vehicle registration suspended. The new law will block driver’s from renewing registrations if they have outstanding E-ZPass violations.
The state made the change after drivers were arrested due to errors in the E-ZPass system.
