Can they send you a ticket if you don't have a license plate,but temporary license plates, if you accidently go through the Ezpass lane?

Most of the temporary paper license plates are now put on where the official license plate goes.
I know in the past you didn't get a ticket because most of the temporary license plates were put on the windshield in the back.

Yes, and while it might take them a few minutes longer to find your identity in the database with those temporary plates, they will find you.

You can't add a car with temporary plates to your account.

I bought another car last week, and I didn't realize that now you take your car home the same day you bought it, so, since I obviously can't drive two cars, I had to leave my older car at the dealership. I forgot to take my EZ Pass transponder out of it.

So, the next day, I get on the Parkway and drove through the EZ Pass booth on autopilot and I saw "Toll Unpaid" on the little screen and said, "Oh $#!+". Completely forgot about it. So, I guess they'll be coming after me for that fifty cents.

So spoiled using the EZ Pass. I had to pay cash on the GSP and Turnpike for the rest of the week until Saturday came and I could hike the three miles to the dealership and pick up my old car! Was probably really only two-and-a-half miles--Google Maps didn't know my shortcut and just shows roads.

The dealership I brought my car from actually said as soon as a car is sold,it has to be taken off the lot.
I wonder why? Maybe liability issues?

So temporary plates are registered with the Dmv?

If you get a EZ Pass violation notice, all you would have to do is fill out your EZ Pass account number either online or via mail. They will waive the $50 or $25 fee whatever it is and you just pay the toll or they deduct it from your account.

You could try and list your temporary plate on your online account too under vehicle maintenance.

I don't know. When I bought my last used car, in 2008, I had to wait until they called me to tell me it was ready to pick up. When she said I had to take the car that day (last Tuesday) I was shocked. She said sometimes they have "runners" who can drive your other car home for you, but that no one was around that day and I don't have family or anyone nearby that I could ask to drive me back to the dealership to pick up my car. So, I waited until Saturday and walked there. A cab would have probably cost me $20 and I'm too cheap to pay that, lol.

My daughter was coming down by train from her college upstate to get the old car on Sunday, but I needed to clean it out before I gave it to her,

That's strange that the transponder had issues and you got that message. Not to be obvious, but did you call the service center?

Not sure if your new car might be one of the ones that has windshield issues and you need an outside mount? Just guessing.
