Ez pass - money in account question

I just started using this so new to it. We have $13 left on our account. We will be going through tolls tomorrow. What happens if tolls exceed the money in account? I just went on to add $25 but it says it wont be available for tolls for 48 hours. Is there a fee for going through a toll with not enough money in account?

The credit card automatically recharges when it gets to Zero. The sign will just read low balance & recharge. Do you have it on automatically charge even if you added extra money?

I better check into this. From what I read, I got the impression, if it doesnt have enough money in account, there is a violation. Like I said, I sm so new to this. I just want to avoid extra charges

Do you have a credit/debit card on file? That's what we do so they automatically replenish the account when it gets low.

Yes. I have credit card on file. Im just wondering what happens if I use more before it got to the point to replenish. I have $13 on it. I think at $10 it gets replenished. Will be using a bunch of tolls today. I just added money to it myself but it says it wont be available for tolls for 48 hours. So going through tolls back and forth I wont have enough in there in time.

Re: Ez pass - money in account question

You will not get violation. Only way you would is if you didn't have credit card on file & it ran out. As soon as it it's $10, it will replenish. No need to panic. You may see low balance as you pass through but that's all

It will just replenish using the card in file. I have used it for years. You won't get a violation.

Ok. Thank you. I feel like behind the times being a new user of this.

Does everyone keep a minimum in there or do you put, lets say $100 in there?

We've driven hundreds of miles with numerous tolls and low balances and have never gotten a violation. We've had ours for well over a decade.

ETA: ours just automatically recharges. I think our automatic recharge is $50.

It depends on how your account is set up. You can get a fine for going through EZ Pass with not enough money in your account. As I know from experience!

ETA: If you have it set up to automatically replenish, you might still get the violation, but you can fight it. I think the first time is just a warning anyway.

ETAA: We went through a cashless toll (where they send you a bill) and didn't have enough money on our EZ Pass, so we stuck it in the glove compartment in the little slip and STILL got a violation because it wasn't in all the way and registered as using EZ pass. Chat Icon

I don't really know all the ins and outs of using ez-pass, but we don't ever "replenish" ours. We have a credit card on file and I guess it just automatically replenishes when it reaches a certain dollar amount. If you have a credit card attached to yours, I think you'll be fine

Re: Ez pass - money in account question

I go to the city pretty frequently and use an EZ Pass. It'll just saw "low balance" and go ahead and use it. I've ended up having a negative balance for a day while it replenishes, no issues with violations and no issues at the gate. The only time I ever had an issue was when something happened with the bank account and it didn't replenish for weeks. I used it after and got stuck at the ez pass thing and a cop came and told me that I needed to check the website because our EZ Pass was showing up as not having any funds. It was more embarrassing than anything but I still didn't get a violation. I paid him cash and kept on moving through.

It will replenish automatically if you have it set up too and the amount is based how often you are using it. When I was using it everyday I had a higher replenish amount it was over $100 when I stopped they lowered it right now I think it automatically does $25.

There is a minimum they replenish on - I think 25.00.

If they see that you using it all in a certain time period they will send you an email to let you know that they raised the minimum limit.
