If you entered a Tag only lane when attempting to cross you are unable to pay via debit or credit card. They may accept cash.
The lane is clearly marked for Tag users only, there is the “T” lit up above the lane and it is marked on the road (painted red).
You would be expected to pay the violation and as such the administration fee for not having the appropriate method of payment (a tag) available at the time of crossing.
The Tamar Tag account should be kept topped up and the tag needs to be present at the time of crossing. If you cross without the tag or it doesn’t have the appropriate funds you will be asked to pay cash. If you unable to pay at all you will be issued a violation like every other driver.
If you can arrange for your account to be topped up promptly we will deduct the crossing from your account at the cash rate.
