It would be really interesting if this random event causes the entire nation to end up AET in 2020 and they don't go back.
Every toll booth would need an optical license plate reader first.

DelDOT is going AET temporarily on I-95 and Route 1 due to COVID-19.

Last I saw, the Illinois Tollway and PA Turnpike are also doing this (and I imagine most other toll authorities will quickly follow suit).

They don't have readers right now and that isn't stopping them.

So that would mean that vehicles without ET wouldn't get tolled.

Every lane has license plate readers already, how else will toll violators or tag misreads be tracked and billed?

I was driving on US-13 in North Dover this morning and came across a portable VMS saying "STOP THE SPREAD" / "STAY HOME"  This is combined with the governor saying he may issue a stay at home order today.

All the signs in South Carolina on I-77, I-26, and I-95 were displaying basically the same "stay home" message.

I was going to move these to the coronavirus thread except I do not have the power as a regional moderator to merge it in there.  -Mark

I don't think it's necessary. It's a Delaware observation.

I agree with your point, but I don't want the discussion on COVID-19 to be feeding onto every thread in the forum.
