    Truck Driver Used Mechanical Bumper to Bypass EZPass Toll, Police Say

    A truck driver was arrested after police say he used a hydraulic bumper to obscure his license plate and avoid paying an EZPass toll on the George Washington Bridge. (Published Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2015)

    Police arrested a 45-year-old man for allegedly using a mechanical bumper on the front of his truck to lift and conceal his license plate so that E-ZPass cameras couldn't identify him after he blew through a toll gate on the George Washington Bridge.

    The man drove the truck through the toll lane around 8:35 a.m. Wednesday.

    Police say that he used a black toggle switch on the truck's dashboard to activate a hydraulic bumper, which lifted the license plate, making it impossible for E-ZPass cameras to see the truck's license plate number.
