I’m driving around Bergen County. That sound you’re hearing is a device that alerts you any time your E-ZPass tag is scanned. The problem is that it’s going off like crazy and there isn’t a toll booth in sight. The device was created by a man who is protective of his privacy, but still wanted an alias that makes a splash. His cover name is Puking Monkey. Our ride takes us on the feeder roads surrounding the George Washington Bridge including Routes 46 and 4 in Fort Lee and up the northbound side of the Palisades Parkway and all the while this detector keeps going off, even though during that entire time, we didn’t go near a single toll booth.
