El Paso drivers getting mistaken toll road bills from Dallas

EL PASO, Texas -- El Paso drivers are getting toll bills in the mail, even though there are no toll roads yet in El Paso.

At least two local drivers received bills from roads operated by the North Texas Tolling Authority, for an area around Dallas that neither had been to. Needless to say, they were shocked to see these toll bills.

NTTA spokesman Michael Rey says if receive a bill just like this one, you too can dispute it by calling the number on the bill.

Here in El Paso, there are gantries set up for the Border West Expressway when the tolls go into effect.

Those gantries are designed to read a driver's license plates and are similar to gantries in north Texas.

A picture of the license plate and vehicle is taken - and sent in the mail. But in the two cases we discovered, the gantries appeared to have read wrong license plate numbers.

As for tolls in El Paso, Raymond Telles of the Camino Real Regional Mobile Authority says there are no tolls on the Border West Expressway for the near future.
