Geauxpass

Be aware. I just received a ticket in the mail from Geauxpass for two violations in August and September. I've had a tag on my windshield since the tollbridge opened. When I called, the woman explained that my card had expired and since I did not call them and give them the new expiration date, I was in violation. I've never heard or read anything about that requirment. I know, I know ignorance is no excuse. Nonetheless, instead of owing $5 bucks, I now owe them $55 bucks. Check your card expiration dates guys and gals.

pass

Shadrig, I know how you feel. I had the same thing happen to me a while back. Had the pass set up for automatic debit whenever funds ran down and didn't realize a renewed card would disrupt this cycle. On the good news side, I called them and they reversed all the penalties that had been attached as well more that were coming due to them being far behind on sending out violation notices. Hope you can get the same results. Good Luck!

grand isle and fourchon no longer exist

for me grand isle and fourchon no longer exist, i have never been and will never set foot on the other side of that bridge until the tolls are gone.

if thats the rest of my life then im fine with that, even if someone paid the toll for me i still woudnt cross the bridge on principle.

as far as im concerned the gulf of mexico starts at venice and leeville and there is no roads or land beyond them.

i will never pay to use a road that i have used for free all of my life.

pass

Capt. Ricky, I'm set up the same way. She said most things, they can fix, but not this. How'd you get the penalties reversed?

Geauxpass

I appreciate it. I know better than to throw it in the trash. They may not put a warrant out for you, but somehow, someway, sooner or later it'll catch up with you.
