Considering it was the weekend it may not have been entered immediately into the database. Only 5 states are not “in compliance” with DLC even though they do cooperate with the compact. I would assume a simple speeding violation would be carried over to your home state. I’d give it a day or two and call back.

@leembee:  Most Ez pass “tickets” are actually warnings in which you must pay the toll and then a processing fee.  This is different than a ticket with a fine.  I believe EZ pass will report you on the 3 strikes basis, but I’ve heard of them not caring as they get more in fees.

EZ pass violations are not considered moving violations, and thus are not reported as point on your license. However, if you don’t pay them in a timely fashion, they can go into collections. Regardless of who was driving the vehicle at the time, because really they have no way of knowing that, they are charged to the registered owner of the vehicle. Unfortunately, I have some first hand experience with this. 

 

With regards to the speeding ticket in NY, I would suggest just paying it ASAP. Even if it isn’t reported to Connecticut, not paying it could have serious repercussions for your husband if he is ever pulled over again in NY or comes into contact with the police there for any reason.
