Proper Toll Tag Mounting Information
As a FasTrak customer, you are responsible for mounting your toll tag properly. It must be mounted inside the vehicle at least 2" from top edge of windshield, horizontally, in the center behind mirror to ensure successful toll payment. Click here for alternative mounting locations.
FasTrak electronically collects tolls using a radio frequency system which “activates” your toll tag about 300 feet before the deduction is taken. Therefore, you cannot wait until the last minute to take the toll tag out of your glove compartment or wave it as you approach the toll plaza, since such actions interfere with the activation of the toll tag.
If your toll tag cannot be read, and you do not have your vehicle's license plate on file with FasTrak, a violation notice will be sent to you. To avoid receiving a violation notice, please mount your toll tag properly and keep your vehicle information updated. For more information, click to watch the "Keep It Movin' With Tag!" video.
The FasTrak toll tag must be mounted properly before use. If the toll tag is not properly mounted, it may not work and may be unlawfully positioned*.
Step 1. Clean placement area on inside of windshield with isopropyl (rubbing alcohol) and allow to dry.
Step 2. Remove plastic tape from back of VelcroTM mounting strips on toll tag.
Step 3. Position toll tag as illustrated below based on your mirror type.
Step 4. Press toll tag firmly against the windshield glass.

Exterior Toll Tag and Commercial Vehicle Mounting Instructions
Your exterior toll tag is designed to be attached to the front of your vehicle, on a flat surface. It is screw-mounted in the area on the front bumper where the license plate would normally be located.
Position the toll tag so that the mounting holes correspond to the top of the license plate area on the front bumper of the vehicle.
Note: If the license plate area on your vehicle is partially obstructed by an overhanging bumper, please call the FasTrak Customer Service Center for an alternate mounting location.
