At least they were able to get you sorted out fairly quickly. My matter took 2 bloody weeks.

Did you talk to the guy with the Irish accent? Sean? He's the one who got my account sorted out.

Perhaps............ very calm and quiet fellow with a heavy accent of some kind. I thought it was a French accent, but then I couldn't tell an Aussie from an Austrian, LOL.

So with the ice bomb issue, I read somewhere that this also happened on the Alex Fraser, but it obviously received little attention since that bridge is old-assed and didn't cost a bajillion dollars. Can anybody confirm this?

And obviously the Alex Fraser isn't going to be getting the cable scrapers. Did cars who got damaged on the Alex Fraser also get their deductible waived?

Alex Fraser did have the same issue.. but i think it was only 2-3 cars..

Alex Frasers cables run parallel to the roadway, and do not cross over it. Thus the ice bombs for Alex Fraser would have to get East-West running wind to push them onto the roadway or else they'll just fall onto the sidewalk/over the edge.

Like melloman said, the main difference is that the cables there don't hang over the roadway.

But yes, there's also the fact that it's not a shiny new uber-pricey toll bridge and thus nobody flips out about it when it does happen.

it depends on how the contract was written, but the public will most likely never find out.

Theres a little something called freedom of information. Given it's a tax funded project the information will be there. We don't live in Soviet Russia.

It's not, actually. That's what the tolls are for. You remember the tolls? I can see why you might have forgotten about the tolls, they're never talked about or covered in the media or anything.

I'm starting to hate TReO. I went there for the third time yesterday, because their billing system made errors. The second time I went, it was because my second vehicle did not get the 20 free trips promo. You'd figure after the first time, they would automatically give me the free trips for all the vehicles under my name, as stated in their promo blurb.

They are still dinging me for my vehicles being longer than they are. First time I wish I was shorter, LOL.

RCMP cracking down on drivers trying to evade bridge tolls
Drivers get creative, using a variety of methods to cover their plates
Quote:
LOWER MAINLAND (NEWS1130) – Drivers are getting creative in evading bridge tolls, but RCMP say they’re keeping watch.

The most common way to trick toll cameras is installing clear plastic plate covers, which are sold at many hardware stores. They may be transparent to the naked eye, but can obscure cameras used on toll bridges for billing purposes.

RCMP Corporal Bruce Robertson says anyone caught driving with the covers will get a hefty ticket for over $190. They’re actually illegal.

“We stop the vehicle and [plastic covers] get removed, because it is an infraction on the Motor Vehicle Act to have them.”

But that’s not the only way drivers are evading tolls. Commuters say trucks are also pulling down plastic covers over their licence plates, and others have even removed their front plates completely.

“It was a brand new pick-up truck that had its tailgate down. So I inched my way past him and looked over, and sure enough, he didn’t have his licence plate on,” says a caller to News1130 who witnessed a driver avoiding his licence plates being snapped by bridge cameras.

Robertson reminds drivers they must have two licence plates, clearly displayed on both the front and rear of their cars

So there is a loophole... whoops, sorry, forgot this is revscene.
So there is a lupole...


Quote:
SURREY (NEWS1130) – The agency set up to collect your money when you cross the Port Mann Bridge says it can’t monitor those who cheat the system.

News1130 has spoken with several solo drivers who say they are getting away with a toll discounted by 25 per cent.

Quote:
“You only have to be in the HOV lane when you go over the sensors and then you can switch back to the regular lane,” says one anonymous driver.
Quote:
“I take the HOV lane because it is a 25 per cent discount and you only have to drive a small stretch over the bridge in order to receive that discount,” admits another.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was purposely publicized to create more "cheaters"

and more undercover cars would be patrolling the route.
