Pikepass Change Deadline

By November 4, 2012

There's procrastination, and then there's procrastination. And if you haven't yet bid farewell to the old familiar beep of the Pikepass hard case, you're taking procrastination to a serious level. Apparently, many have done just that because the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority said last spring it was issuing a 4th and final notice to customers not yet using the new stickers. But a bunch didn't listen, so now, the 5th notice really will be the last warning.

In just a few weeks, the old hard case Pikepasses will no longer work, and if a motorist tries to drive through a turnpike gate with one, the account will be charged a $25 penalty to start, with a maximum fine reaching $75 per offense. In addition, the driver could be ticketed by a state trooper. So to avoid the fee, not to mention the hassle, get your sticker installed right away. If for some reason you did not receive a sticker, call customer service at 800-PIKEPASS.
