My VA EZ Pass and GA Peach Pass are both kept in the Tour Pak. That is per the Transport Office directions.
If perhaps the sensor fails to read the EZ Pass and there is no gate/arm, I keep going. My tag will be read and automatically charge my accounts.
Never had a problem.
My GA Peach Pass, which is also acceptable in FL and NC, works the same.
For either pass, IF there is no bypass lanes and you must stop at an attendants window, and the sensor/arm doesn't work - I get off bike and take transponder out of Tour Pak and wave it at sensor until it does work. Very few attendants are impatient but if so, I refuse to pay cash to attendant - It's not my fault or problem their sensors are tuned too weak.
And it is a big hassle to get a credit if the system double charges you.............
