Maryland: Late Fees Waived on Unpaid Tolls Until 11/30/22

Effective February 24, 2022, the MDTA has begun a civil penalty waiver grace period for tolls paid in full and has ceased referring toll bills to the Central Collection Unit (CCU) and MDOT Motor Vehicle Administration (MDOT MVA) temporarily.

The grace period will end at 11:59 p.m. on November 30, 2022, and the MDTA will resume referrals of unpaid toll bills and civil penalties to CCU and MDOT MVA on December 1.

How does the Civil Penalty Waiver Grace Period work for me?

The MDTA has ceased escalating toll bills to the Central Collection Unit (CCU) and MDOT Motor Vehicle Administration (MDOT MVA) over the waiver grace period. This acts as a temporary payment plan by allowing you to stretch out toll payments without the worry of further consequences, until the waiver grace period ends at 11:59 p.m. on Nov. 30, 2022.

If you have unpaid Video Tolls and/or Civil Penalties, the MDTA will waive the Civil Penalties if your toll balance is paid in full between Feb. 24 and 11:59 p.m. on Nov. 30, 2022. After the grace period ends, customers will remain responsible for all unpaid tolls and civil penalties and referrals will resume.

Why am I still receiving tolls and civic penalties in the mail?

This plan does not impact the posting of backlogged and current tolls. The MDTA will continue posting COVID-backlogged tolls into summer 2022.  For customers who choose not to pay their Video Tolls before the due date on the notice, mailings of citations/civil penalties will continue during the grace period and will remain in effect if unpaid tolls are not paid by 11:59 p.m. Nov. 30, 2022 (within the grace period).

Will the MDTA accept payments of Individual Tolls over time?

Yes, you can spread out your toll payments at your convenience during the nine months of the waiver grace period. Each time you pay a specific Video Toll transaction in full, the associated Civil Penalty is waived. In order for all your Civil Penalties to be waived, you must pay all your unpaid Video Tolls (your full toll balance) by the end of the waiver grace period at 11:59 p.m. on Nov. 30, 2022.

What if I’ve contested my Tolls and Civic Penalties to court?

If you already contested to court, but have not been scheduled or have not yet appeared in court, your Civil Penalties will be waived and your court date cancelled if you pay your toll balance during the waiver grace period and before your court date (if scheduled).

I’ve already paid my toll balance. Will my Civic Penalties be waived?

No action is required by you, as your Civil Penalties will be waived automatically during the grace period.
