Taking a toll

FORT LEE, N.J. - Police say a truck driver used fishing line to flip his license plate in a bid to avoid paying tolls into New York City.

A police officer says he saw 41-year-old Javier Marte of Yonkers, New York, drive through a George Washington Bridge electronic toll lane without the toll registering on Wednesday night.

Police stopped his truck and found a fishing line rigged from the cab to a hinge on the front license plate. They say the line could flip the plate out of view going through the toll plaza. They also say the rear license plate was bent up to defeat security cameras.
