COLUMBIA, S.C. -- The operator of the Southern Connector toll road in Greenville County wants the state to help collect money from those did not pay for using the road.
The Greenville News reported that Transportation Secretary Robert St. Onge is worried about helping because it would involve Social Security numbers.
The Connector 2000 Association operates the road and wants to participate in a program that allows debts to be taken from tax refunds.
The association wants the transportation department to obtain violator’s Social Security number and give the information to the Revenue Department to collect the unpaid tolls.
The association says violators owe more than $200,000.
St. Onge is worried about his department working with Social Security numbers after the problems the Revenue Department had last year in a hacking case.
