OKLAHOMA CITY - Pikepass customers who have resisted getting the new windshield sticker tags will soon find that their old units no longer work.
The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority will send out a fourth - and final - notice warning customers that the old units will be deactivated. The notices will be sent out in the middle of next month, Glen Branscum, director of Pikepass operations, said Monday.
About 25 percent of the Pikepass customers - or 150,000 of the Turnpike Authority's 580,000 Pikepass account holders - have not turned in their old units and replaced them with the windshield stickers, Branscum said. Some of the account holders are commercial ones, such as trucking companies, and have dozens of vehicles. It's expected that the Turnpike Authority will issue about 1.2 million windshield stickers.
Customers who already have received three notices and have not responded to any of them will receive a yellow postcard advising them that their old Pikepass units will be deactivated, he said.
