Increase oversight and regulation of the Illinois Tollway Authority sign now


This petition is prompted by personal experience of having missed tolls due to a non-working I-Pass transponder which resulted in $108 in missed tolls and a fine of $11,000 (Yes you read that correctly), and a threat of Drivers License and License Plate suspension. The Tollway refuses to disclose information related to these violations unless a Freedom of Information Request is filed. The current administrative review process has a cost to the alleged violator of $600 to start the process, plus any attorney costs. Recent stories of very similar situations in media outlets through out the state demonstrate that this is not an isolated occurrence. Please help and make your voice heard in changing laws to make the Tollway have more accountability to the people of the great state of Illinois.


I along with the undersigned encourage the Illinois General Assembly to change laws related to the oversight of the Illinois Tollway Authority, with the following changes:

1. The General Assembly should have greater oversight over the administration and operation of the Illinois Toll Authority.
2. Limit the fines for missed tolls to a reasonable and appropriate level, with a maximum fine no greater than $2500
3. Require a fair, free, and understandable Due Process for all toll violations.
4. Suspensions of Drivers License or License Plates to require circuit court order.
5. Require complete disclosure of violations during due process procedure, without the need to file under Freedom of Information Act.
6. All high level appointments to the Toll Authority require a 2/3 majority Senate vote.
7. Tollway projects greater than $15 million should be subject to approval by the General assembly.
8. Provide that the Toll Authority is subject to public referendum votes.

Please help in correcting the loosely regulated and abusive authority that the Illinois Toll Authority currently has, and help the people of Illinois have a greater say in how the Tollway is operated.
