Beginning in July, toll violation fines in existing notices prior to March 9, 2020 will be reduced to $3 through June 30, 2021 to provide customers an opportunity to pay off fines at a significantly reduced rate. This includes anyone previously sent to collections for outstanding toll violations. Below is an example of the reduction customers can expect.
These reductions go far beyond any previous Illinois Tollway violation relief efforts and give customers a chance to finally settle their past unpaid toll violations.
There’s no need to contact the Tollway to qualify for relief. To view your reduced balance, click the link below and enter the number on your previous violation notices. The reduction will be reflected in the system. Note: Notice numbers begin with “VN” followed by a series of numbers.
Payments can be made all at once or at any time through 5 p.m. on June 30, 2021, and all payments can all be made online.
To address violations please follow the instructions on your notice received by mail.
