    Motorists who repeatedly speed through E-ZPass lanes at the Port Authority's crossings risk having their accounts suspended.      

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is sending warnings to E-ZPass customers who exceed the 5 mph speed limit. The technology tracks 74 toll lanes and the information is sent to the New York Customer Service Center.      

    Motorists who speed will have their E-ZPass privileges suspended. The first offense will result in a warning, followed by a loss of E-ZPass for 60 days, 180 days and a year for the fourth offense.      

    E-ZPass cannot issue speeding tickets.      

    The Port Authority says the biggest concern is ensuring E-ZPass customers can safely merge with motorists who pay cash.
