Southbound on North Dallas Tollway

Heading toward downtown in some remarkably light traffic. There's lots of construction going on there right now, and some lanes are blocked off and the center keeps being shifted around, and getting to and from downtown has been a little more of a pain lately. Still, it's one of the best thoroughfares in town, and during non-rush hours, it's my road of choice.
The video enforcement sign refers to people who rush the gates at the toll plaza and don't stop to pay. If you drive through without paying, you'll get a bill in the mail to pay a ticket for not stopping, and I think it's about $70, versus the .75 cent fee you pay when you drive through.

i am sure it will help to lighten the traffic on rush hours with this VIDEO enforcement, so everything runs digitally?:)

Well, when it comes to collecting huge wads of money, the City of Dallas is remarkably efficient!

They rounded up a bunch of E-Z Tag violaters in Houston recently. Some of them owed thousands of dollars in tolls. Thought they could get by but the eyes are everywhere. Well, not quite as bad as England but still...

They are about to bust out with a toll road in Austin. Was heading north-east from 183 and ran into it, but the gates aren't turned on yet. Pfew.
