State lawmakers want to crack down on drivers who speed through toll booths without a working E-ZPass.

A new proposal would allow officials to suspend the registration of anyone who racks up five toll violations within 18 months.

Under current law, toll evaders are contacted by a collection agency, and their registration is revoked only after committing several violations within the same locality.

About $35 million in unpaid tolls and fines were racked up on the New York Thruway alone between 2007 and 2011.

Governor Andrew Cuomo supports the legislation.
