Inshore Fishing in Southeast Louisiana
I went to GI last month, and went into the GeauxPass
Office in Golden Meadow as usual to pay my toll at the
Kiosk. Keyed in my vehicle information, swiped my
credit card, took the receipt, and continued on my
trip to a great fishing day, without giving this
event a second thought.
One month later, I received a notice from the GeauxPass
Office, asking me to pay the toll as well as a late fee.
I thought I paid the toll so I dug out my receipt only
to discover at the bottom of the receipt 'This Kiosk
was unable to complete your transaction' was printed.
The kiosk could have asked me to try again to complete
the toll payment. But it was programmed NOT to ask.
In my opinion, this is grossly unfair and unethical.
It's like creating a trap and I was not careful enough
to fall into the trap.
Please read the receipt every time you pay the toll
to make sure your transaction has completed. GeauxPass
does have the incentive not to warn people about a
failed transaction because the late fee is 10 times
that of the toll.
GeauxPass looks like GoPa$$$$$ to me now!
