INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana drivers who didn't pay their tolls when traveling to Kentucky on I-65 could soon have a hold on their vehicle registrations.
According to RiverLink, the company in charge of the tolling, the hold will be placed after a toll is unpaid and at least four notices have been sent to the customer. The notices are mailed over a 135-day period.
Registration holds will begin next week, on Monday, Oct. 23.
Riverlink says as of Oct. 13, 16,000 registration holds were expected in Indiana.
“We don’t want drivers to be caught by surprise,” said Scott Adams, Indiana Department of Transportation director of tolling for the Ohio River bridges. “We’re letting them know now that registration holds will soon be issued, in hopes that affected drivers will reach out to RiverLink and pay tolls owed. By doing so, they can avoid a hold when going to renew their vehicle registration.”
RiverLink is a tolling system in which there aren't lines of people stopping to pay tolls - Drivers simply cross the threshold and are billed to their car's registration address. Tolling for the I-65 bridges connecting Indiana to Kentucky began in December.
This includes the SR 265 Lewis and Clark Bridge, the I-65 Abraham Lincoln Bridge and the I-65 Kennedy Bridge.
