How Does The I-PASS Work?
It really works simply. Whenever a vehicle goes through any toll plaza, a signal will be sent through the radio antenna to the I-PASS transponder. That transponder will trigger the toll deduction from the vehicle owner’s account.
Occasionally tolls are not posted to the account of the vehicle owner at the transaction time. This is because of missing, an inactive or improperly mounted transponder with the dead battery. Every unsuccessful transaction is recorded digitally, and then they try to match up such recordings on the vehicle owner’s I-PASS account’s license plate. When there is a success between the I-PASS account and license number plate, the toll will be posted to the account.
Such tools that are recorded digitally are known as video tolls. If the vehicle owner’s transponder is mounted properly and the video toll is occurring on his account, then he must test the battery of the transponder to make sure that its functioning is proper. The video tolls will be available next to the transaction, whenever you review the account records. The toll that is deducted successfully at the transaction’s time is labeled “toll”.
Every “Toll” will occur when the I-PASS transponder sends the signal. If your account doesn’t have the balance at the transaction time, then no toll would be collected. In that case, you must fund your account within 7 days of such transaction to avoid the violation. If you have added the funds, then a “Troll” transaction would be posted to the account. Otherwise, the unpaid transaction will be sent as the violation to the owner of the vehicle.
