The first segment of the ICC highway in Maryland opened for traffic Feb. 23.

The highway has cameras mounted at its entrances that will take photos of the license plates of drivers who don't have an E-ZPass. Those drivers will then get a bill in the mail for the cost of the toll, along with a three dollar "service charge."

The ICC opened Feb. 23 in Montgomery County. There was a grace period for drivers without E-ZPasses. Now, that grace period is over.
