I am not a FasTrak account holder. Why do I receive an invoice when I cross the Golden Gate Bridge without stopping, but a toll violation notice when I cross any of the other Bay Area toll bridges prior to January 2021 without stopping?

The Golden Gate Bridge uses an invoice system to charge tolls to drivers who were not paying with FasTrak, a License Plate Account, or a One-Time Payment. As of January 2021, state-owned bridges will use an invoice system and drivers will receive an invoice if they do not pay with a FasTrak toll tag, a License Plate Account, or a One-Time Payment.

The best way to avoid violations is to sign up for a FasTrak account. FasTrak users also receive discounts on Golden Gate Bridge tolls.
