Tips for installing your transponder

  • The lights on the transponder should be visible to the driver when seated in a proper driving position.
  • If the front windshield is divided in the centre by a vertical metal strip, the transponder is to be mounted at least 5 centimetres to the right of the vertical metal strip.
  • You're responsible for camera charges from transponders that are unmounted or incorrectly placed.
  • Incorrect placement of the heavy vehicle transponder may result in a fine under the Highway Traffic Act. All heavy vehicles require a valid working transponder by law. Without one, you can be charged under the Highway Traffic Act and invoiced a $50 camera charge per trip.
  • By law, the licence plate must not be obstructed by any device or material that prevents the entire licence plate including the numbers from being identified by an electronic toll system.
