Stupid question - if you’re not sure you’ve been through but pay just in case- what happens to the payment? Thank you!

I know, but I can use it free 24 hours a day as I get free road tax.
You become the patron saint of moles
I think it sits in your account until you cross or you can ask for a refund.?
Your payment is valid for 12 months. So if you paid and didn’t cross you’ll be in credit.
You can check for your paid crossings online by entering your payment number and vehicle registration.

Quote from his first post, if you’re not sure you’ve been through but pay just in case- what happens to the payment?
Funny i did that. When I posted my comment It did not state paid, it said ( but pay just in case ) Did not state have paid yet.
Maybe you should read posts in order before commenting.
My main point is how could you not know. As i stated in my first post.

As I mentioned above, there is no charge between 10pm & 6am.

It is also free every day for moped, motorcycle, motor tricycle, & quad bikes.

A Local Resident Discount Scheme exists to offer a saving of up to a third of each crossing charge.



However, it should have been free for everybody many years ago:

Yes I remember the claim of "free to use" after its costs had bee covered, ..subsequently it became a nice little earner which raises around £70 million a year no authority is going to do more than give you the finger when cash in coffers are to be had.


However, bearing in mind congestion being so damn severe, it really ought to be toll free to pure BEV's as part of the national carbon cutting goals encouraging some daily drivers to make the switch.

The local residents is a bit better than a third off, it costs us £10 for 20 crossings or £20 for unlimited crossings a year
Peoples inability to read - seriously. Surely you can’t all be this daft??

The information I read must be out-of-date.

Not as good as free, though.

A quick forum post does not give any indication of how I punctuate on the whole.
Your reply completely turned my opinion on it’s head - apologies, you can in fact all read and definitely didn’t answer the exact opposite of OP’s question.

And if I was a complete idiot who actually couldn’t punctuate? I’d still be able to read. So your point is entirely moot.
