I just got a nasty letter from the New York Port Authority saying that I owed them 60 dollars for blowing through the E-Z Pass lane at the Lincoln Tunnel. There's a few problems with this claim: I live in Utica, NY almost 300 miles from the tunnel. I was also working on the day the ticket claims and was nowhere near the city. Finally: Never in my entire life have I even SEEN the Lincoln Tunnel. The ticket clearly has my plate number and name on it though.
I figure this is a result of a mix-up with one of those traffic cameras that misread my plates, or someone from another state had the same plate numbers?
The little card says I can appeal it by sending them a copy of my registration, but I'm curious what happens from there. Do any of you have any experience with these situations? Is there any information I should be running down in the meantime? This is a first for me.
