    The cheaper rides on the New Jersey Turnpike are over Friday for drivers whose E-ZPass transmitters were issued by other states.

    Through Thursday, the New Jersey Turnpike Authority gave all E-ZPass users a discount for travel in off-peak hours.

    Now, the price break is only for drivers with New Jersey-issued E-ZPasses.

    Other toll road authorities have been making similar charges.

    Only New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority and New York State Thruway offer off-peak discounts, but only to motorists with
    E-ZPass accounts from the customer service centers in that state.

    New Jersey has been marketing its E-ZPass elsewhere. Drivers don't have to live in the state to get the transmitter from there.
