1 Beware of FDOT’s Cameras….. on 10/18/2016, 5:16 pm

I got an invoice from the FDOT for an “Unpaid Toll Violation.” The charge was for $3.25, for a $0.50 toll violation on State Rode 50, outside of Orlando. Tacked onto the $0.50 toll was a $2.75 charge; obviously, the fee for the contractor that extorts money from the public for the FDOT.

Well, I nor my vehicle have been to the Orlando area in years; moreover, the photo they showed me of the license plate was completely illegible and was taken on a dark colored vehicle. My vehicle is white.

I called the FDOT fraud line, and they gave me the phone number to the contractor, located in Atlanta. I called the contractor and they decided to “let me off the hook,” because one of the numbers on the license plate could not be read. The whole friggin’ number could not be read, in my book.

These folks are taking the illegible photos and trolling for revenue. They are picking license plate numbers which might approximate the ones in the illegible photos, and sending out nuisance violations in the hopes that gullible people will pay the fines.

A great many states have thrown out photo enforcement. I find it corrupt from the get go when they delegate enforcement to a for profit agency......simply wrong on so many levels.

Oh this happened to my daughter several years ago when she had never been to Orlando, come to find out there are people out there duplication license plates and are up to no good. She called the police down there and we sent all sorts of documentation. The other car with her plate number was an SUV, she had a beat up pontiac. The SUV was involved in a hit and run.

I filed an online consumer complaint on this, both on the FDOT and the contractor.

You know it is bogus when the "invoice" includes no phone number so you can call and protest. I had to call the FDOT attorney general's office to get this number so I could call the contractor.

The more I think about this, the more steamed I get about it. It would have been so easy to just go to their online paywall and surrender the $3.25 they alleged I owed them. I agree with Seaoat that this practice needs to be outlawed.

That's what you get when you have a corrupt governor with a corrupt administration.
