One of the strangest things I had to get used to when we moved to Miami from New York City was calling the electronic toll collection program, the SunPass. In New York it’s known as E-Z Pass.
Now I may not have to remember any name at all if car makers follow Audi’s lead. Audi is integrating a toll payment system on some of its models so that the devices automatically pay the road tolls.
Audi explains that “the Integrated Toll Module (ITM) is a toll transponder built into the vehicle’s rearview mirror. The technology is compatible with existing tolling agencies nationwide, which can be linked with a driver’s new or current account.”
I think this is all pretty cool.
