Have I mentioned lately that I LOVE EZPass!?
- The executive director of the New Jersey Turnpike Authority was driving to the beach a few weekends ago when he looked at the cars backed up to pay a cash toll and thought: "Why don't these people have E-ZPass?"
"I don't think people realize how easy it is to get E-ZPass," Lapolla said yesterday. He estimated that between 300,000 and 400,000 applications will be handed out this weekend.
E-ZPass, introduced in New Jersey in 1999, is used by about 67 percent of drivers on the turnpike and 61 percent on the parkway, the authority said.
