Toll roads

Toll roads aren't something we IE drivers generally have to deal with, but recently I've been getting trips to Orange County a lot and it's easy to end up on a toll road down there if your maps aren't set up to avoid tolls roads and you're not familiar with the area. In my case it was both.

If you find yourself on a toll-road don't panic, Uber will reimburse you for the toll and you can avoid a ticket.

To avoid a ticket:

1. Note where you entered and exited the toll road.
2. Go to thetollroads.com within 24 hours and pay for the toll to avoid getting a larger ticket.
3. Request reimbursement from Uber through the ride history in the app.

I set up an account with them so if I take the 73, 133, 241 or 261 I won't be ticketed I will just be charged the toll fee, which I can get back from Uber.

There is no charge for this type of account. No transponder required. So no transponder fees.

The absence of a transponder is why it is limited to the 73, 133, 241 and 261 toll roads. I guess they rely on the photos taken when entering those roads.

So don't sweat the OC toll roads. You're not going to get a ticket as long as you deal with it within 24 hours. My last toll was $3.31. If not dealt with it would've been $103.31.

I have managed to avoid the fines but still avoid the toll roads when possible. I remember once trying to pay online at it asked me which tolls I passed and I didn't have a clue, I throught it was a single toll. Prior to that I once tried to pay with a Franklin but the attendant didn't have change. Another time I had small bills but it was an unattended coin bucket. Yeah, so I avoid the toll roads.
