State highway officials said they will soon begin cracking down on drivers who speed through E-ZPass tollbooths, the Associated Press reported.

By November, drivers who fail to observe the 15-mph speed limit at tollbooths on the Garden State Parkway, the New Jersey Turnpike and the Atlantic City Expressway will start receiving warnings in the mail as the first step toward suspending their privileges, according to AP. Under the state’s plan, drivers will get two warnings. A third violation would result in a 60-day suspension of the E-ZPass tag. A fourth violation would result in a 180-day suspension and a fifth would result in a one-year revocation of the account, AP said.

Officials said the decision to focus on lane speeders was made after several other problems with the system were fixed in recent months.
