article imageMan gets hit with $17,000+ bridge toll bill

Seattle - A man in Washington said he was not happy after he ended up paying thousands of dollars in bridge tolls, which his son owed.
The man, Tom Rose, said his son crossed the 520 bridge in Seattle daily for work, but he didn't open a Good To Go Pass account to pay the tolls.
Rose said that his son thought he was just going to be billed later. He continued to say that his son thought he could save up some money and then pay the tolls later on.
According to Fox, Rose's son never received the bill, and when Rose went to sell his car, he was told how much was owed, which was more than $18,000 — $1,360 was what was owed in tolls and more than $16,000 was owed in penalties.
Rose and his son contaced the WSdOT's Good To Go office, and they said that they were told they could go before an administrative judge, but doing that probably wouldn't do any good.
Rose said that people need to pay their tolls, and that everyone needs to do their part, but it is almost abuse, as their is not proper recourse and the administrative process is not correct.
A spokesperson for the WSDOT said they looked into the matter and found that the bills they sent to Rose's son were returned back to them.
The spokesperson said that they were willing to work with Rose. Rose said that a second look into this would be great and they welcome any type of remediation.
