FleetCar lease gets busted

Several news outlets are carrying a story about fleet car lease owing the port authority fleetCar auto transport car carriers owes tolls$250,000. This is one from Bnd.com:

“FORT LEE, N.J. — A traffic stop on the George Washington Bridge may have yielded a jackpot for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

Port Authority police say a car carrier owned by Illinois-based Fleet Car Lease was stopped at 9 a.m. Friday for having an inoperable E-ZPass transponder. Further investigation revealed that the truck had nine previous E-ZPass violations totaling more than $800.

Apparently that was only the tip of the iceberg: Port Authority spokesman Al Della Fave says the company that operates the truck owes the Port Authority more than $250,000 in unpaid tolls and fees.”

None of the stories tell us if it was owner operators or company trucks involved, and none of them have any statement from FleetCar. I have a call into Joel Cox for an official statement form FleetCar.

Update: Second call placed to Joel, still no response.
