Editorial: Oklahoma Turnpike Authority is tearing down its toll booths ... but you still get to pay

Tulsa World February 9, 2021

The toll booths on Oklahoma’s turnpikes are coming down, but the road isn’t free.

The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority is adopting an all-electronic toll collection system starting this summer.

Legislation to authorize collections on the new system are pending before the Oklahoma Legislature.

It will mean very little change for drivers who use the PikePass system, which allows them to pay their fare while barely slowing down and at a discounted price. About 80% of Oklahoma turnpike drivers take advantage of that system.

OTA cameras will will capture the license tags numbers of other drivers and bill the vehicle’s owner. View the full article: TulsaWorld.com
