WALL TOWNSHIP - Drivers who repeatedly speed through E-ZPass lanes at the Port Authority's crossings risk having their accounts suspended.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is sending warnings to E-ZPass customers who exceed the 5 mph speed limit.

Motorists who speed will have their E-ZPass privileges suspended. The first offense will result in a warning, followed by a loss of E-ZPass for 60 days, 180 days and a year for the fourth offense.

E-ZPass cannot issue speeding tickets.

The Port Authority says the biggest concern is ensuring E-ZPass customers can safely merge with motorists who pay cash.
