The Maryland governor says a tougher approach is necessary to hold "scofflaw" car rental companies accountable for not paying tolls. Appearing on WTOP Radio, Governor Martin O’Malley said that the Maryland Transit Authority should revoke car registrations from rental companies that have outstanding toll fares. According to a Baltimore Sun report, such truancy is a part of a reported $6 million in unpaid tolls. O’Malley said that if "scofflaw," "deadbeat" companies question the state’s authority to do so, they should file a lawsuit. The state needs to amend what some say is ambiguity in the laws.
