Houston: Grand Parkway segment B, construction starts in 2026

FBCTRA has quite a hostile policy towards drivers from outside of the region with their 'everyone without a TxTAG is in violation' approach.

Operating a vehicle on any toll road operated by the Fort Bend County Toll Road Authority without a valid electronic toll tag is a violation and can result in a citation, toll violation notice, and additional fines and fees.

E-ZPass is not an accepted toll tag and they do not offer pay-by-mail or any other form of payment.

I wonder if this kind of approach would fly on the beltway of one of the largest cities in the U.S. So far they seem to be getting away with this.

Their "violations" only cost $2.50 in additional fees if you pay within 30 days. Houston and especially Fort Bend County is kind of out-of-the-way; someone doing a cross-country drive is unlikely to get hit with a FBCTRA toll.
