SunPass Backlog Billing Results in Unpaid Balance of $120 Million

SunPass is extremely common among Florida highways and often of the time, people pay their amount.

However, as of this week Florida lawmakers discovered that a backlog of month long delayed billing in SunPass billing last year has resulted in $120 million owed.

The backlog resulted in customers receiving three invoices within the span of 90 days. This included collections and holds on their vehicle registrations if they failed to pay all the amounts due.

According to WPTV, the Executive Director of Turnpike Enterprise Nicola Liquori, addressed the situation through a presentation to the Florida House of Transportation and Infrastructure this week.

Liquori states, due to the backlog and system error, they do not expect to recover all the owed money.

As an attempt to remedy the situation, the Florida transportation officials announced their seek for new bids in three years rather than renewing contacts with Conduent State and Local Solution that oversaw SunPass conversion.
