You can buy a sunpass at the rest stops. They also sell them at all Publix supermarkets and CVS drug stores. It will save you money and time. Do not take I-95 into Miami-Dade. It is a large spread out metroplitan area. I-95 ends just over the Miami River in downtown Miami, and US1 will have enough traffic signals and traffic to turn a one hour drive into a two hour white knuckle experience.

Thank you for the information. I will take the Sawgrass instead, and likely overnight at the casino to save some time hunting for a CG with a vacancy. From the replies, buying a sunpass is the best way to travel through FL.

Ray- You can go to SUNPASS.COM to order a sticker for your window. It is $4.99 and then you add funds to it either electronically or manually. Once you have it you will then be ready for not only tolls in FL but also NC and several other toll states.

In going into the Keys you will need to pay a toll either by a reader or through the mail unless you want to fight the stop and go traffic on US 1 coming out of Miami.

You just reminded me of another question I have. The sunpass website explains where to position the sticker on the windshield; will the reader-read the sticker OK on a DP windshield that is vertical?

Ray- Since it is a RF reader I don't think you will have a problem. The customer service folks at SUNPASS are extremely helpful so you can also give them a quick call, just not on Monday's as it is real busy that day for some reason.

Yes, it does. Just finished with 2 trips on the turnpike with a DP + toad & it read the transponder & the number of axles with no problem.

I read somewhere that you should mount the sticker near the bottom of the windshield on a class A, since that is about the same height as the top of the windshield on a car. I have the plastic case style transponder and I just throw it on the dash and it works fine.

Thanks everyone for the advice and experiences. Now that I'm satisfied buying a Sunpass- and using it, is the way to travel, we can concentrate on other things.

Yeah Ray, if you can't beat 'em...might as well join 'em. Damn revenuers. Just thought you were against the principle of paying tolls.

You're right, I'm againit, but sometimes reality has to be recognized. It's either pay the tolls or drive state highways from Orlando South; which I did _ once. Took the entire day driving state highways from Lake City to Lake Okeechobee.
