This past summer I had flight problems and needed to rent a car between JFK and BWI. I jumped all over the $20 per day charge for a EZ-Pass device. In this case, the car rental company took it on the chin as the tolls on major highways between these two airports significantly exceeds that amount.

I own a Florida Sun Pass device and use it only two weeks a year to save toll lane hassles. I am beginning to see that some automated toll programs are beginning to allow use of "foreign devices" in their systems. Perhaps I am too optimistic in believing that this will be at no extra cost to the consumer. Is this an interstate commerce issue?
