there is an automated toll booth on my daily commute that for whatever reason, fails to detect my windshield device thingy (we call it Sunpass) around 10-15 times a year. it does, however, manage to take a picture of my car and license plate, and send me an unpaid toll ticket in the mail.
this pisses me off because i have to waste time, plus pay an admin fee on top of the toll. it is super inconvenient to take a different route, and even worse to use the manned booths to pay every day. so basically i think i'm fucked out of an extra $50-100 a year in these fucking fees (i don't mind, of course, paying the toll)
i've already asked multiple times why (a) they don't fix the goddamn thing, or (b) they have my Sunpass and credit card on file, why not automatically debit it....but i'm sure you know how that went. the thought has crossed my mind that perhaps they deliberately arent fixing the goddamned booth so they can collect extra revenue, but city governments can't be that dishonest, can they?
