DRPA official loses $2,500 in pay, must reimburse $600 for giving daughter E-ZPass

DRPA official loses $2,500 in pay, must reimburse $600 for giving daughter E-ZPass

Assemblyman DiCicco thinks punishment of Michael Joyce too light

BY TOM HESTER SR.

The Delaware River Port Authority has docked its top law enforcement official three day's pay — about $2,500 — for giving his daughter an E-Zpass transponder for 100 free trips across any of four toll bridges run by the agency and is requiring him to reimburse $600.

But the way Assemblyman Domenick DiCicco (R-Gloucester) sees it, the penalty for Michael Joyce, a Camden County lawyer, did not go far enough to assure toll payers that abuse of public funds will not be tolerated at the bi-state agency.

Joyce borrowed the E-Zpass of corporate secretary John Lawless. The majority of DRPA employees are issued transponders that allow 100 free trips annually over the bridges. Joyce's daughter used the E-Zpass to commute to school in Philadelphia. She had the devise from 2008 until earlier this year.
