3. Account Information
Your New Jersey E-ZPass Account consists of a prepaid balance (including discount plans) and a $10 per tag refundable deposit for accounts that are replenished by check or cash.
a) Tag Deposit: A $10 per tag deposit is required if you replenish your Account by check or cash. The tag deposit fee is refunded to you when you close your Account, have settled any outstanding balances, and return the tag(s) to New Jersey E-ZPass in good condition. The deposit fee will be credited to your Account if you elect to pay automatically by credit card or by direct debit from a bank checking account.
b) Prepaid Balance: You must maintain a prepaid balance amount with New Jersey E-ZPass to cover applicable charges to your Account. Each time you use your New Jersey E-ZPass tag, applicable charges will be deducted from your Account. New Jersey E-ZPass will also deduct applicable administrative fees incurred under this Agreement. If your Account balance has remained negative for 60 days, you will be sent a revocation warning letter notifying you to replenish your Account. If you fail to replenish and maintain the minimum prepaid balance within 10 business days after letter is sent to you, your Account will be revoked. You will not be allowed to open another Account with New Jersey E-ZPass, and your Account will be placed with a collection agency to pursue your outstanding balance. New Jersey E-ZPass also reserves the right to notify any and all consumer reporting agencies of any outstanding balances that have been delinquent for more than 90 days.
c) Account Balances: No interest will be paid on balances in your Account or on your refundable tag deposit.
d) Replenishment: Periodically, your toll use will be reviewed. If your monthly activity is above or below your current monthly payment, your minimum monthly debit/credit card, cash or check payment will be adjusted accordingly and you will be notified on your next scheduled statement.
e) Automatic Credit Card Update: New Jersey E-ZPass, in its discretion, may receive updated information about your credit card, including new account numbers and expiration dates, from the financial institution issuing the card. However, it is your responsibility to ensure that all your Account information remains up to date.

4. Account Status
a) You will receive a monthly statement for the first six months upon opening an Account and bimonthly statements thereafter, unless there were no toll revenue transactions and no financial activity in the Account during the applicable period.
b) You may choose to opt out of receiving paper Account statements by calling the New Jersey E-ZPass Customer Service Center at 1-888-AUTO-TOLL (1-888-288-6865) or by visiting the New Jersey E-ZPass website (www.EZPassNJ.com).

You may choose to opt out of E-ZPass Plus by calling the New Jersey E-ZPass Customer Service Center at 1-888-AUTO-TOLL (1-888-288-6865). This program allows you to use your E-ZPass tag at authorized E-ZPass Plus facilities. If your Tag is used to incur E-ZPass Plus charges, any charges of $20 or more will be directly charged to your credit card by E-ZPass. Charges under $20 will be deducted from your pre-paid balance. Such credit card charges may be different from your replenishment amount and charged to your credit card at any time. By participating in E-ZPass Plus, you consent to the release of your name and address to E-ZPass Plus facility operators for collection purposes.
f) Depending on usage or other charges to your Account, there may be more than one replenishment transaction in one statement period.

6. Tag Misuse Administrative Fees, Orphan Transactions, Disputed Charges
Improper use of your New Jersey E-ZPass tag(s) or failure to pay the proper toll may result in the imposition of an administrative fee or other charges as follows:
a) If you use your tag(s) when your Account has a negative balance, is suspended, revoked, or you use a tag that has been reported as lost or stolen, you may incur an administrative fee of up to $50 (per occurrence), be charged the full undiscounted toll, and may be asked to surrender your tag(s).
b) If you use a valid tag in a vehicle other than the type of vehicle for which the tag is designated, you may incur administrative fees of up to $50 (per occurrence) and may be asked to surrender your tag(s). Such continued misuse may also result in revocation of your Account.
c) If you attempt to use a tag without properly attaching it to your vehicle in accordance with the instructions in the E-ZPass Customer Reference Guide you received when your Account was opened, you may incur an administrative fee of up to $50 (per occurrence).
d) On the New Jersey Turnpike, orphan transactions can occur when, due to equipment failure or user misuse, a tag is not read at either the vehicle entry or exit point or both. In these events, the actual toll cannot be determined and the toll amount charged will be based upon the vehicle's class and the following rules: (a) if the tag is not read on entry for whatever reason, but is read at exit, the maximum fare will be charged; or (b) if the tag is not read for whatever reason at both the entry and exit, but the license plate on the vehicle is read, the median fare for the applicable exit interchange will be charged to the Account assigned to that license plate. If New Jersey E-ZPass determines that the orphan transaction is a result of user misuse or improper installation of the tag in the vehicle, New Jersey E-ZPass reserves the right to a charge an administrative fee of up to $50 (per occurrence) in addition to the toll charged. Other facilities accepting E-ZPass outside the State of New Jersey may have similar policies. You agree to abide by the policies of those facilities consistent with section 2 of these Terms and Conditions.
e) Tags must be removed from any vehicle under tow. If tags are not removed, your Account may be charged for any and all tolls incurred in connection with the towing of such vehicle.
f) Administrative fees and charges may be billed directly to your Account. You may only contest the imposition of charges or administrative fees to the New Jersey E-ZPass Customer Service Center. Any such challenges must be made in writing within 60 days of the issuance of the first Account Statement reflecting the disputed charge. If the fee is rescinded, your Account will be credited the amount of the rescinded fee or charge.

7. Lost/Stolen Tags
You must notify New Jersey E-ZPass immediately upon discovery of the theft, loss or unauthorized use of your New Jersey E-ZPass tag(s) by either calling 1-888-AUTO-TOLL (1-888-288-6865) or reporting it on the website (www.EZPassNJ.com) to the New Jersey E-ZPass Customer Service Center. If notification of the loss or theft is made to New Jersey E-ZPass in a timely manner, via one of the methods listed above, you will not be liable for unauthorized charges in excess of $49.99 made to your Account prior to receipt of notification of loss or theft, and you will not be liable for any charges resulting from the unauthorized use of your tag(s) after the receipt of notification of loss or theft. A fee may be charged to your Account for any lost or stolen tag(s). If you wish to replace your lost or stolen tag(s), a new $10 per tag deposit will be required if you replenish your Account by check or cash. If your tag was stolen, notification of the theft is made to New Jersey E-ZPass in a timely manner, and you provide the New Jersey E-ZPass Customer Service Center with a written copy of a police report of the tag's theft, you will not be charged any fees for the stolen tag or for a replacement tag.

All outstanding charges will be deducted from the funds in your Account with any remaining balance refunded to you by applying a credit to the credit card you have on file, or, if there is no credit card on file, by issuing a refund check to you.
