The cost for evading tolls on Oklahoma roads is going down.

Gov. Mary Fallin signed a bill Tuesday that reduces the fine for second and subsequent toll violations to a flat $25 fee.

Under current law, the penalty is $25 for the first violation, $50 for a second violation and $75 for a third violation.

A spokesman for the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority says the agency asked for the fine reduction, saying it would foster a more positive customer experience, especially while trying to settle outstanding violations.

OTA officials say they hope the change also will encourage more people to use the Pikepass system.
