Driving south on I-95, I want to go through Baltimore’s McHenry Tunnel. Sign herds all drivers into two separate lanes, one says “EZ-PASS” (which i don’t have, because my car is registered in Florida, which uses a different system, Sunpass) and the other says “EZPASS, No Cash,” which doesn’t do me good either, because (I assume) if you don’t have EZ-PASS, you must pay cash. Or credit. Or get billed by mail according to your license plate. Or something else. Having no idea what to do, I take the “EZ_PASS, no cash” lane and slow down at the unmanned booth until someone behind me honks. I have no idea what just happened. Can some Baltimorean explain? Will I get billed? Did they give a free ride through the tunnel? Am I not allowed into the tunnel without EZ-PASS? WIll I get a ticket in the mail? Has your state gone insane?
Same goddamned thing happened on Maryland route 200 too. Makes no sense to me.
