The Illinois Tollway has a new policy to protect the privacy of its I-PASS customers.

The policy complies with a new state law barring the tollway system from releasing drivers' personal information to third parties. The policy took effect Jan. 1.

The tollway's electronic system collects dates, times and locations of travel, but the tollway system won't disclose that information, except in response to a subpoena or to assist law enforcement.


Oak Lawn Democrat Rep. Kelly Burke and Chicago Heights Democrat Sen. Toi Hutchinson sponsored the bill, which Gov. Pat Quinn signed into law in August.

Burke says drivers now can be assured that their personal information, such as the dates, times and places where they travel on the tollway system, will be kept private.
