Don’t get suspended….Pay the toll!
This week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the beginning of the suspension process for 575 New York-registered vehicles as part of this state's crackdown on persistent toll violators. These vehicles are alleged to have violated the recently adopted state regulations targeting individuals who fail to pay tolls, fees and other charges resulting from five toll violations on different days over an 18-month period. The regulation, which applies to all New York toll crossings, went into effect January 20.
Prior to the suspensions taking effect, the Department of Motor Vehicles sends letters notifying owners that their vehicle registrations will be suspended within 45 days unless they pay the specified charges, or unless they contact the E-ZPass New York Customer Service Center to resolve the charges, or contact the Department of Motor Vehicles to request a hearing. Letters have been sent to individuals with violations at New York State Thruway Authority, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and Metropolitan Transportation Authority Bridges and Tunnels facilities.
HUB encourages all drivers to pay careful attention to any notices or violations they receive from the Thruway Authority, Port Authority or Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

Highway Use Tax Fee Reduction!
As of April 13, 2016, registering a truck for Highway Use Tax (HUT) will now only cost $1.50 per truck.
As part of the recently enacted New York State budget, the $15 HUT Certificate of Registration fee and the $4 HUT decal fee have been eliminated. Those fees have been replaced by a $1.50 per truck administration fee. Please note: Only the fee has changed.
Annual DOT Roadcheck June 7-9
The emphasis this year is tire safety (i.e., measuring the tire tread depth, checking the tire pressure, checking to make sure no items are lodged between dual tires, and examining the overall condition of the tire to ensure no deep cuts or bulges exist in the sidewalls of the tire).
Drivers may be asked to provide the following:
- Medical card
- Hours-of-service documentation (Log Books).
- Drivers will also be checked for seat belt usage and the use of alcohol and/or drugs.
NON-CDL MEDICAL CARD REGULATION
In most cases, operating a Non-CDL vehicle for commercial use, requires a driver to carry a DOT medical card. Find out if your driver is required by using the link below from the NYSDOT!!!!

BUT....WHAT ABOUT THE HUT?
The NYS Highway Use Tax is required for any truck, tractor or other self-propelled vehicle with a gross weight in excess of 18,000lbs. This tax is imposed on motor carriers that operate on NYS public highways (excluding toll-paid portions of the NYS Thruway). The tax is based on mileage traveled and is computed at a rate determined by the weight of the motor vehicle and the method that you choose to report the tax.
The NYS HUT tax return must be filed on a quarterly basis, starting with the calendar year when you began operations in NYS. If your preceding calendar years total highway use tax is more than $4,000.00, you will be reclassified to a monthly filer. If your prior calendar year’s total tax is $250.00 or less, you may request permission to file once a year. The most convenient way to file is online, and the link is as follows:
