BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Once Maryland rolls out its new electronic tolling system, drivers who forget to pay a video toll will see the penalty cut in half, the Maryland Transportation Authority said Thursday.

The MDTA Board approved lowering the penalty for drivers who don’t pay a video toll within 45 days from $50 to $25, in part because the cost of collecting citations has decreased, the agency said in a news release.
