The Illinois Tollway is striking back at drivers who routinely fail to pay up. The agency has created a virtual wall of shame on which it has named the worst offenders.
It posted the list of 157 companies on its website today. In the top spot is Landa Transport, a Frankfort-based trucking company that the tollway says is on the hook for nearly $215,000 in unpaid tolls and fines. The company did not respond to a phone message seeking comment. The Internet list was sanctioned by a law Gov. Pat Quinn signed this week.
Many of those on the list are construction and transportation companies. There is also a company that services elevators and one that cleans diamonds. According to the tollway, the companies collectively owe the agency $3.7 million.
