I'd say about 70% of the time I don't have my transponder since I have a tinted windshield and didn't want to put it on since it would rip the tint off. Never had any issues, just debits your account as normal. They may send you a letter saying to get a new transponder after a while, don't really know.
I did get a front plate transponder, but I take my plate off so much it isnt on there often. That could be a solution if you have a front plate.
Talk to Kevin and PAF. He don't give no fucks. His tint guy is awesome.I can't even find a place that is willing to do it they keep saying that when the 'wet' the window to apply the tint there is a danger of the water running down behind the dash and damaging the electronics...
I want it darker.... it's at 50% right now.
Maybe when I have my tints redone. I have a feeling I'll be dropping lots of monies at PAF in the near future. I need a detail too.

According to the tollways website after an undisclosed number of license plate only tolls (i.e. not having the transponder in the registered vehicle) they will start to issue tickets. No idea how true that is or if it is just a scare tactic, but it IS in their regulations.i never have it in my car. as long as the car is registered with them, you dont need it.
They are full of shit. I almost NEVER have the thing in one of the cars and never a problem.
They issued me a fine when I didnt register the cobra but I just called them, registerd...back to normal.
Ive been doing this since i got an ipass many moons ago.
Sometimes tolls do not post to your account at the time of the transaction. This happens because the transponder signal was not read. Transponder signals are not read because of a missing, improperly mounted or an inactive transponder. These transactions are digitally recorded ( a photo of the license plate) and later matched to the license plate on your I-PASS account. The toll is then posted to your account. These digitally recorded tolls are referred to as Vtolls.
This is what I do, once in a while, when I feel like it.I just hold it up to the window when I'm going passed a toll
