EZ-Hoax

The New Yorker reports on the dealings of the Shelter Island Bridge and Tunnel Authority's (SIBTA) website and its unauthorized use of the E-ZPass trademark. The New Yorker: The Talk of the Town got this quote from an E-ZPass official: “It’s an insult to the Port Authority, quite frankly.”

Unfortunately, no one at E-ZPass realized before firing off the nastygram that Shelter Island has neither bridges nor tunnels, and SIBTA was just a prank created by some locals.
