Because of improvements on the the Turnpike, they have eliminated some toll booths and it is a charge by license plate. The Chamber has directed us to post the following for all tourist to read. We thought we would put it under Directions.
Driving to Miami or the Florida Keys? Beginning February 2011, tolls on Florida's Turnpike from Exit 1 to Exit 47 in Miami-Dade County, will only be collected electronically, with SunPass or with TOLL-BY-PLATE , a system that takes a photo of a vehicle's license plate and mails a bill to the vehicle's registered owner. Cash toll collections will be eliminated on this segment of the Turnpike. With SunPass or TOLL-BY-PLATE, drivers DO NOT STOP to pay tolls. Drivers in rental cars should ask about charging tolls to the credit card used to rent the vehicle. Visit www.floridasturnpike.com or call 1-800-749-PIKE for details.
