Agree. It's technically simple, institutionally questionable. EZ Pass is just a contractor. It would be up to NJ Turnpike Authority and Port Authority to coordinate and allow EZ Pass to process the data to do this.
Yes, that's the impediment. I would think in theory Jersey City could become another member of the E-Z Pass Consortium of government organizations and set up its own system of fees independent of the PA or NJ TPK. The problem with investing in this sort of system is that the goal isn't to make money but to limit the negative externalities the existing system imposes on downtown.
