If you have hesitated about getting your EZ Pass because of the $25 initial fee plus the escrow of $25 for a Delaware EZ Pass transponder, the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has a great Christmas present idea for people who want to zip through the toll lanes anywhere on this map.
Until December 31, 2011, you can get one for free! What a great idea for a Christmas present for a family member whose car does not have one of these devices. There is a special plan for anyone who uses Route 1 more than 30 times a month,--- a discounted price is available. You can sign up online at http://www.dmv.de.gov/services/toll_services/tolls.shtml.
And if you get hung up with all the info needed to do this online, there are some lovely people at 888-EZPassDE
(888-397-2773). I just spoke to one, and she was very very helpful! When was the last time a State agency gave you a break? Merry Christmas Delaware!
