Motorcyclist uses sneaky trick to avoid paying tolls on busy highway

Daring moment motorcyclist is caught doing a sneaky act to avoid paying tolls on a busy motorway

  • Motorist tried to hide number plate to avoid paying toll fee
  • Motorbikes are not fitted with e-tags 

A sneaky motorbike rider has been hailed a ‘legend’ for covering his number-plate with his foot to avoid paying tolls on a busy motorway. 

The driver performed the manoeuvre on an Australian road to avoid being detected by cameras and charged a toll fee as his motorbike isn’t fitted with an e-tag. 

The move was captured by a passing motorist, who uploaded the hilarious video to a local Facebook page earlier this week. 

‘This guy,’ the driver jokingly captioned the footage, which shows the rider exiting a bypass before entering a busy freeway. 

It’s unclear where the rider of the bike was driving at the time, but he can be seen exiting a bypass before making his way onto a busy motorway

Social media users were quick to react to the rider’s clever ploy, with some going as far as to call the man a ‘legend’ for avoiding detection.   

Some suggested that roads be free for motorcyclists because they don’t cause traffic and don’t contribute to pollution as much as other vehicles. 

‘It’s ridiculous that motorcycles and scooters have to pay the same amount for tolls as cars and 4WDs and vans do. How is that fair?’ one person said.

‘They literally make up zero congestion and zero damage to the road they are riding on.’.   

Like other drivers, motorcyclists have to pay fees for using tolled roads. 

If riders don’t pay the fees within a three-day period they can be issued a final toll notice which includes an administration fee of $20.  

Riders who fail to pay this fee can be issued a final penalty notice of more than $190. 

NSW has the most tolled roads in Australia with 13, followed by Queensland which has six and Victoria which has two.
