Ohio Turnpike fixes vehicle height scanners

Back in January of this year, we reported on the problem with scanners at Ohio Turnpike toll booths, where vehicles with bicycles and other non-permanent structures on their roofs were autmatically being scanned and incorrectly classified as Class 2 vehicles, which resulted in higher fares.

Later, the turnpike rescinded the new fare scheme, but you had to complain to the toll booth operator to get them adjust the fare.

According to this article on the Plain Dealer's web site, the Ohio Turnpike Commission has now fixed the toll booth scanning equipment so that cars with bicycles on roofs will be correctly classified and charge the correct fares.
