I've never had a library fine, no tickets, no accidents, but due to unexpectedly ending up driving on an Illinois Tollway, I missed one unmanned (!) toll, and drove thu another unmanned (!) toll which had money/credit card slots and baskets taped shut. I had been prepared for emergencies with a basket of quarters, just in case. I won't mention my Nebraska plate, no Transponder Pass on my windshield, heavy traffic speeding at 80 mph, and I didn't want to be on this xxxx tollway in the first place. (And, I usually drive in a town with just 5 traffic lights.)
10 days later, recovering at home from vacationing, I remembered to rectify this error and went on-line to determine how to pay for 2 tolls. My Illinois friend who is visiting me also assisted my efforts, and both of us assumed this would be a short, but tedious venture, and my honest nature insisted this was the way to go. This is a normal oversight and Illinois has kindly (?) offered multiple pages on line to assist. After much information-overload, and assurances of "EASY", my patience came to an end. I no longer enjoyed hearing helpful information, encouraging patience from my dear friend who is offering assistance. Two and a half hours later, needing new passwords, opening accounts, warnings of "didn't match", enter your mobile cell phone (the WORST, trying to get that to "take"), I'd had enuf, and slammed my computer closed, and checked the frig. for old wine. My friend and I are still speaking.
I think I'll receive an invoice, possibly with a fine, or fee or who knows what. This was really one of the most aggravating experiences I've had.
