07 Mar: Vitale-Sacco ‘E-ZPass For Gas’ Bill Approved By Senate Panel

TRENTON – A bill sponsored by Senator Joseph F. Vitale which would urge the Turnpike Authority to work with New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway service area vendors to allow motorists to pay for gasoline purchases using their E-ZPass tags was unanimously approved by the Senate Transportation Committee today.

“The E-ZPass system was designed to simplify life for thousands of motorists on our State’s toll roads, and by extending the tags’ purchasing power to cover gasoline purchases on those toll roads, we’re continuing that mission,” said Senator Vitale, D-Middlesex. “Considering that, in peak summer months, many of the gas stations in service areas on the Parkway and Turnpike are more gridlocked than the worst toll plazas, this make sense.”
