WE REGISTERED FOR an eFlow windscreen tag and might have become a little confused after the direct mailing dropped through the front door. The eFlow device is designed to support barrier-free movement around Dublin on the M50. A series of sensors reads the electronic tag when it's mounted on the windscreen. We plan to mount it in the boot and see if that affects anything. We have to pay €1 per month for having the eFlow windscreen tag. I think the tag is transferable--something else we're going to check after the system comes into effect on 30 August 2008. Television advertisements make the point that if you're unregistered, you have to pay for your journey before 8PM on the day following your romp across the old toll plaza. All sorts of penalties and court snags face those who don't pay. Now the big news for us: "You will be able to use your eFlow tag to pay your tolls electronically at toll plazas nationwide." To us, it appears to affect the M8 en route to and from Cork. We'll keep readers advised.
