Earlier this year I went through a Fast Lane toll gate to fast for the Fast Lane to pick up my id, but not so fast that they did not take a picture of my car and license plate.
When I received the letter telling me I had been charged 20 dollars for not being picked up on fast lane, my first reaction was to call fast lane, and get all 'Masshole' on them. The person I was talking to suggested it would be easier for me to send in a fax, than to discuss it with him.
What a genius! True genius. Because I sent in a fax, explaining how I did NOT know my car had not been read, and that I would like to pay for the missed toll.
So I hope your sitting down, kind reader. Because...
My toll was forgiven, forgiven! I don't have to pay it. Sweet.
So keep this in mind, if you have an argument with the Massachusetts Turnpike Fast Lane program, send a fax* and request a 'Post Mark Settlement' because you will win.
