Two months ago, she got a bill for more than $1,300 and she was told she was one of lucky ones.
"The judge told me your amount is pretty low. I've seen it where it was $50,000," she recalled.
When Lewis spoke to the State Road and Tollway Authority, they told him it's up to customers to have current credit card information on file and that it's also on customers to contact the authority as soon as possible to try and reduce the fine.
This woman says she learned it was too late in a packed courtroom Monday morning with dozens of other desperate drivers.
"There are a lot of people who are dealing with this and they can't afford this hefty amount," she said.
The tollroad authority says they send out multiple notifications before fines go to collections or the court.
Some drivers say the first notice that caught their attention was the notice to be in court.
