Edward Lynch drives a compact car, so he was surprised when Sunpass sent him an unpaid toll notice with the picture of an SUV.
When you pass through a toll and don't pay, a camera takes a picture of your license plate. Lynch and the toll violator have almost identical plates. Sunpass told him an employee misread the Q on the violator's plate as a zero and that's why he got the warning letter.
Sunpass told Lynch employees read 1,000 plates an hour. That's one every 3.6 seconds. The DMV told Eyewitness News they are considering dropping Q and zero from license plates because of the mix-ups.
