previous next Effective - 28 Aug 1997bottom

  238.365.  Infraction for violation of toll collection regulation — report, admissibility, photo is rebuttable presumption, multiple vehicle owners. — 1.  The driver of a vehicle involved in a violation of toll collection regulations is guilty of an infraction and upon conviction thereof, shall be punished by a fine to be determined by the court.

  2.  A written report or telephone call from a toll enforcement officer or law enforcement officer, or photo monitoring system evidence that indicates a required toll was not paid is admissible in any proceeding to enforce this section, subject to foundation evidence to establish the authenticity of the report, call or photographs.  Photo monitoring system evidence which shows that the driver of a vehicle has failed to pay a toll shall raise a rebuttable presumption that the motor vehicle shown in the photographic evidence was used in violation of this section.  In the event that charges are filed against multiple owners of a motor vehicle, only one of the owners may be convicted and court costs may be assessed against only one of the owners.  If the vehicle which is involved in the violation is registered in the name of a rental or leasing company and the vehicle is rented or leased to another person at the time of the violation, the rental or leasing company may rebut the presumption by providing the peace officer or prosecuting authority with a copy of the rental or lease agreement in effect at the time of the violation.  No prosecuting authority may bring any legal proceedings against a rental or leasing company under this section unless prior written notice of the violation has been given to that rental or leasing company by registered mail at the address appearing on the registration and the rental or leasing company has failed to provide the rental or lease agreement copy within fifteen days of receipt of such notice.
