C-DOT making big bucks off toll lane crossers

You’re stuck in traffic and see what you think is a chance to get into the express lane of C-470, so you take it. Problem is, if you accidentally cross dotted lines meant for the exit lane, that’s a $75 ticket. Tires cross a solid line, big no no and a $75 fine. Bottom line, if you don’t access the express lane correctly, you will get a $75 fine. If you don’t pay that fine within 20 days, the number doubles, jumping to $150 per fine.

For those folks that used to jump over the solid white line and get in and out of the express lane, the $75 per violation adds up. Crossing the solid line is dangerous for drivers, and a fine makes sense. For those that can’t figure out when they can legally get in and out, the $75 may feel unfair, but they’ll still get a ticket.

The Colorado Department of Transportation has so far, in the nine months since the program started, issued 60 million in fines. They’ve netted $16.4 million after costs and collected about 66 pecent of the fines.
