A truck driver who used a fishing line to flip his license plate to avoid paying tolls was arrested Wednesday night.
A police officer says he saw 41-year-old Javier Marte of Yonkers drive through a George Washington Bridge electronic toll lane without the toll registering. He stopped the truck and found a fishing line rigged from the cab to a hinge on the front license plate. The line could flip the plate out of view going through the toll plaza. The rear license plate was also bent up to defeat security cameras.
