Frequently Asked Questions - Toll and HOV Enforcement

Tolls are enforced by state and local laws allowing the North Texas Tollway Authority to collect from drivers using the TEXpress Lanes.

Occupancy for the HOV 2+ discount is enforced through the use of a continuously updated HOV activation list.

The list is made available to law enforcement personnel in real-time for enforcement on or immediately off of the TEXpress Lanes. Drivers who do not have a minimum of two passengers, including the driver, in their vehicles are subject to fines for non-compliance (Texas Transportation Code Section 452.0613).
