    Wouldn't it have been easier to rig the license plate to a cable to flip just the plate down than have the whole bumper flip up? I've always thought of something like this
    Queens truck driver used ‘James Bond’ gizmo to evade George Washington Bridge toll

    [​IMG] Port Authority Police Pablo Ortega, 45, of Queens, a truck driver who was transporting gummy bears used a hydraulic bumper lift to evade the license plate readers at the George Washington Bridge.
    This gadget is nothing compared to an exploding pen, but it takes a toll.

    Port Authority Police Pablo Ortega, 45, of Queens
    Truck driver Pablo Ortega used a “sophisticated” bumper retractor to evade a $95 fee for 18-wheelers on the George Washington Bridge into Manhattan, authorities said.

    With a flip of a switch, Ortega used the contraption seemingly straight out of a James Bond movie to move his load of candy across the bridge Wednesday, according to Port Authority of New York and New Jersey officials.

    A cop caught Ortega, 45, as his bumper lifted to a 90-degree angle, making it “unreadable to the EZ-Pass reader” as he entered from Fort Lee, Port Authority spokesman Joseph Pentangelo said.

    It’s not known how often Ortega, a Queens native, used the device worth about $2,500, Pentangelo said.

    Ortega is charged with tampering with public records and possession of burglary tools.

    Ironically, he'll get 10 Xs more punishment than the scumbag politicians who purposely closed the bridge down and fucked people trying to get to work for days

    I've run an ezpass before by accident. Went thru, the light turned red and I immediately pulled into the little office building by the toll. I told the toll operator what happened and that I wanted to pay the toll, and they denied me... They told me that I had to wait for the ticket to arrive by mail, dispute it, go to the court date and let them know what happened and hope that the judge accepts your argument... He may even waive the $50 penalty, $25 interest and $100 in fees...

    This was a $0.50 toll...

    The rest of us have to pay so I suppose he's guilty of something, but those particular charges listed seem completely wrong. No public records were tampered (it could be argued their collection was impeded but even that seems shaky) and there were certainly no burglary tools or burglary.

    I would have expected a much more straightforward violation was available for obscuring plates....
