E-ZPass

The first multi-state, electronic highway toll collection system in the U.S. Predominantly in the Northeast, toll systems in other parts of the country may also accept E-ZPass. Launched in 1991, E-ZPass was created by the New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania toll agencies.

External E-ZPass tags are bolted to the license plate frame. However, radio frequencies (RF) penetrate glass and plastic, which is why the tag's chip and antenna housing can be mounted inside the car on the windshield, as in this example. See RFID tag.
