Bay Area Bridge Toll Bandits

Thousands are scamming through Bay Area bridge tolls for free.

KTVU says thieves are stealing the temporary cardboard dealer license plates from new cars and using the non-traceable information to skirt through pay gates.

Vehicles that don't stop and pay at the toll plaza have their license plates photographed by a system of cameras. MTC says an average of 100-thousand "no plate" violations a month were racked up in a full year ending in August to the tune of almost five-million dollars in unpaid toll revenue.
