Sunpass

Last November was our first trip in our new to us 38' Sportscoach on the Florida turnpike. At the very first toll booth, I opened the sliding drivers window and looked down at this very short female toll booth operator and had to hang out the window while she stood on her chair so I could pay the toll. Next day we bought a sunpass and it works great in the lower middle of the windshield. DACOTAH

TOLL-BY-PLATE is a tolling system that works by capturing an image of a vehicle’s license plate as the vehicle passes under a toll gantry, and matching that license plate with the registered owner of the vehicle. The customer will receive a TOLL-BY-PLATE invoice for the tolls incurred over a 30-day period, plus a $2.50 administrative charge. The invoice will include information on how to pay online, via telephone or by mail.

So, we're heading to Florida. Going to take us about 3 weeks to get there as we're traveling. We probably are just going as far as LazyDays and Disney on this trip. Should I buy a Sun Pass? Or just pay when they bill me? Having never been to Florida this should be fun...
In Texas I just drive on through, they send me a bill and I pay it. I think it's easier on me that way as I don't travel many toll roads here.

Hi BABrede,
I think the Turnpike north of I4 remains cash or Sun Pass. I do not think the Toll By Plate has been implemented on the part of the Turnpike you will be on.

There is another solution. After entering Florida (assuming you are coming from the West) travel along I4 until exit 174. Take Rt 65 South 20 miles to Tolegia. Take RT 67 South to Carrabelle and Rt 98. Go left (East/South I do not know how the road is labeled). The Gulf of Mexico should be on your right after you make the left turn. Go about 2 miles to Ho Hum RV Park (on the right. Their contact number is 850-697-2638. This is a great place to chill out and do nothing. It is right on the Gulf. To get to Lazy Days, just follow Rt 98 around and down the peninsula. This is almost all rural country. Not much traffic, and good road quality. Rt 98 will connect with I75 at exit 301. You don't want to stay on Rt 98 any longer as the traffic gets pretty bad. Continue on I75 down to I4 East and to Lazy Days.

I'm from South Florida and if I was going westward out of the state, this is the way I do it. (Just in reverse).

The 'open road tolling' is, for the time being, only on the FL Turnpike south of Miami. Details here. So you do not need to be concerned about it around Orlando. While the SunPass makes it faster to get through the toll plazas, it will not save you any money in most cases. IMHO, unless you plan on going on the toll roads a lot, it is not worth the trouble to set up an account. We got a SunPass Mini because we are driving into Orlando every week or two.

thanks Gary,
That sounds more like my kinda route. Now if I can get Mr. Garmin to find this route I'll be all set.
The plan (???), is to drop MH @ Lazy Days for service, then take our toad (and most of our stuff) to the Disney Swan and Dolphin for my wifes conference. Seemed convenient to get some stuff fixed while her work is providing us a place to stay for a few days.

Kerry
