Toll Road Drivers Want Refund


A reminder to get a receipt whenever possible.

Two Orange County toll roads agencies should forgive $40 million in fines, according to a proposed court settlement. The proposal also calls for $1.4 million in payments to drivers who claim they were charged excessive penalities.

It's part of a three-year legal dispute involving 16 motorists and the Orange County Transportation Authority and Transportation Corrider Agencies. The plaintiffs said the agencies illegally fined them nearly $334,000 for failing to pay about $2,500 in tolls.

Court records show the settlement could apply to tens of thousands of drivers, the Los Angeles Times reported on Monday.

The proposal was filed in Orange County Superior Court last month.
