Bill Summary

Section 1 of the bill states that if the state or a local government that is not already using automated vehicle identification systems (systems) wishes to begin using such systems, it must submit the matter to the voters of the state or the local government, as applicable, as a ballot question at a general election.

A governmental entity or its agent or a toll road or toll highway operator may use a system to assess tolls and charges and issue citations for violations relating to high-occupancy vehicle and high-occupancy toll lanes, to assess tolls and civil penalties for toll roads and highways, and to assess tolls and civil penalties for public highways.

On and after November 9, 2022, the state or a local government that generates revenue through the use of systems shall use the revenue for traffic safety or transportation-related projects.

Section 2 makes necessary conforming amendments and states that a driver against whom a penalty is assessed as a result of the use of a system may satisfy the penalty by paying the full amount of it to any of certain nonprofit agencies and providing proof of such payment to the entity that imposed the penalty.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
