From wondering, I'm David Brown, and this is business worse daily. Happy Friday, one and hall, a startup called pay by car is giving a whole new meaning to the phrase pay at the pump. The Massachusetts company is pioneered away to use express toll transponders to pay for gas and other things. You buy while you're driving, like the chicken nuggets you're guilty, handing to your kids in the backseat. We see you mom, dad express toll transponders. Those little sensor, boxes, you keep in your car so you don't have to slow down and throw singles at a toll booth. Well, if you can pay on a highway without slowing down the founder of pay by car figured, why couldn't you do at this easily elsewhere turns out, you can pay by car launched its first test of this technology last week in a Boston suburb, the launch relies on the easy pass transponder system used in seventeen states set up payback car account and input, your payments source like a credit card.
