The information needed to pay toll violations online varies by state. For example, New York State requires submission of a transaction number with payment, the New York State Thruway Authority advises. Illinois requires the location of the toll booth at which the driver missed the toll, Illinois Tollway advises.
Neither New York or Illinois requires those paying tolls online to create online prepaid accounts, according to the New York Thruway and Illinois Tollway. Florida does require users to set up prepaid accounts, the Florida Turnpike explains. Most states have due dates for payment of violations in order to avoid additional fines and penalties, New York, Illinois and Florida report.
