The amount of uncollected tolls on the Henry Hudson Bridge in New York City skyrocketed after it moved to an all- E-ZPass system, the Associated Press reported.

The change was made in November 2012 to experiment with cashless tolling, which was seen as a way to ease traffic jams.

Unpaid tolls increased to $1.6 million after cash was eliminated through September 2013, compared with $180,810 from November 2011 through October 2012, AP reported.

Officials in New York are planning for more cashless tolling with cash lanes set to be removed from the Tappan Zee Bridge next year.

In the past five years, $150 million in tolls has gone unpaid statewide.
