Hide Your Speed Pass

Being the 21st century you would think that they could make the huge white speed pass that you have to velcro to your windshield a little smaller or able to be used from the glove box. I was trying to find a place to disguise it and was wondering if any one had any good ideas from past experience.

let me know.

Not sure if its offered in MA, but we have the option of a license plate mounted ez pass. I zip tied mine to the lower section of the grille and think its a good spot. You can see it here:

I'm sure they do, but I dont think its a commonly thieved item. Its tied to your tag number. Easy for the easy pass company to see who is using it and if its stolen, just send the toll tickets to the registered owner of the fraudulent user.

I wouldn't even worry about it. Of all things that they can steal they can have that one. Since it is easily trackable and would make them waste time trying to peel that thing off.

Oh yea, I'm definitely not concerned, lol. I think the OP was more so referring to hiding it so that its not an eye sore.

We currently have the 'white box' that my husband and I pass back-n-forth between vehicles.

I've got mine stuck up behind the rear view mirror, I can't see from the drivers seat so it doesn't bother me.

I just leave mine on the dashboard on one of those non-slip pads. It seems to register just fine with all the toll plazas.
When I first got the pass, I was given an anti-static bag and was told if I did not want to use the pass, to leave it in the bag because it can still transmit if not in the bag even if it is in the glovebox, trunk, etc.

Same here, and I can transfer it to my bike. In Ma you can put it on up to 3 different vehicles

Yeah...they suck. Mine is very obvious because they gave me a big white thing. Can't see if from the inside but definitely can from the outside. I've debated spraying it black but am concerned they'll charge me if I ever have to turn it in. They ain't cheap to replace if you lose one.
