^Yeah, the Toll-By-Plate system takes a picture of your plate and reads it, and sends a bill to your tag's mailing address on record with your state. It used to be free, in that you just got billed whatever the toll was. But now there's a service charge too. I think it's $2.50 or $3 per billing (which is once a month).

Thank you all for the feedback, it definitely affects where I'm looking to live considering that everyone (both on here and in real life) that I've talked to about the Veterans has the same opinions on it.
