Port Authority PD: 54 Violations Plus Fines Equals $3,500 For Toll Cheat


FORT LEE, N.J. -- A driver who blew through a George Washington Bridge E-ZPass lane without paying owed nearly $3,500 in tolls and fees, authorities said Tuesday.

Port Authority officers stopped the blue GMC Yukon around 12:30 p.m. Monday at the lower level toll plaza, the authority's Joseph Pentangelo told Daily Voice.

When 25-year-old John M. Woodley of Jersey City couldn't produce an E-ZPass transponder, they checked his records and found 54 violations, Pentangelo said.

Woodley, who was charged with theft of services, toll evasion and disobeying a sign, was released on a summons to appear in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack on May 26.
