Bicyclists Pay Tolls
Tim asked: Are cyclists required to pay tolls while passing through a toll both?
Unless otherwise indicated at the particular toll facility, bicyclists must pay tolls.
s. 316.1001 – Payment of Toll on Toll Facilities Required; Penalties
(1) A person may not use any toll facility without payment of tolls …. Failure to pay a prescribed toll is a noncriminal traffic infraction, punishable as a moving violation
The Florida Expressway Authority Act (Sections 20-31 of chapter 90-136, Laws of Florida) grants the controlling entity the authority to set equitable toll rates.
s. 168.568 – Purposes and Powers
(2)(d) To fix, alter, charge, and establish rates, fares, and other charges for the services and facilities within the area, which rates, fees, and charges shall be equitable and just.
It is recommended that you contact the controlling entity to determine the policy about bicyclists using the toll facility and any applicable tolls. Signs should be posted to help determine the proper authority to contact.
