How to pay tolls in California
If driving in Los Angeles, or in any other city in California, and there are 2 or more of you traveling in your rented car you can drive in the Car Pool Lanes which are indicated by painted diamonds and allow you to pass through toll booths without paying. On the other hand if you want to drive your rental auto in the fast lates it’s most convenient that the car has the automatic payment service FastTrak installed which lets you drive in the fast lanes of all the highways of California without worrying about having change to pay the tolls or forgetting to pay one. In addition, certain routes like the Golden Gate don’t accept manual payment so the best way is to have the FastTrak system. Through RentingCarz you can reserve a rental car over the internet at the best price with the most reputable companies on the market, with the option so that all toll fees can be paid upon return of the vehicle.
How to pay fines in California
Traffic fines in the United States are not charged to the owner of the car but to the licensed driver of the car. This means that the driver is responsible for the fine, not the rental car company. Fines received in California can be paid in person, by mail, or sometimes over the internet depending on the court where it was issued. You’ll find the necessary information on the ticket for the fine itself or at the court’s website to see what are the payment types and conditions. Parking fines are not registered by the court, so they can be paid at the parking agency where the infraction occurred. The later you pay the fine, the more it will cost. It’s very important to realize that an unpaid parking fine might result in you being denied your visa renewal into the United States.
