While riding home through Ohio from the RA, I discovered the service centres sold Easy Passes Transponders for a $12 deposit and then it cost an additional $15, of which 10 goes towards your toll fees, once you activate it. Monthly fee is $0.75. Since it takes a couple of days to full activate it, if you do decide to get one, get it on the way to the east. It works on toll roads in most of the northeast states from Illinois through to Maine and south to North Carolina.
Living in IL, you should be able to get one locally.
Even though I can pull coins and bills out with my gloves, I just got tired of that exercise and picked on up last week.
