Florida Turnpike authority illegally detains millions of drivers

Private enterprise anti-counterfeiting pens aren't good enough for Florida's DOT, they'd rather just violate your rights if a toll taker thinks you look like a criminal.

"Although FDOT refused to comment because the Department expects to be sued, internal e-mail justify the program because of counterfeit bills. However, in a 2 and a half year period the DOT got $16,000 in counterfeit bills, while at the same time it collected close to $2 billion in tolls ($1,523,825,404)."
