The New Jersey Turnpike Authority joined forces with the Motor Vehicle Commission last year to suspend the registration of any driver who owes $1,000 or more in unpaid tolls.
Authority executive director Veronique Hakim tells the Asbury Park Press the authority has collected $200,000 in back tolls and fines and has agreements pending to receive an additional $450,000 from 300 scofflaws.
Under the agreement approved Wednesday, the agency would lower the threshold of unpaid tolls and fines below $1,000 to "any significant sum."
The authority has reimbursed the MVC $14,400 under the pilot program. The latest agreement would cap the administrative costs at $50,000 a year.
