Just copped what the whole eflow thing is and even though I’m rarely near crappy Dublin anymore I might be goin through a toll booth the odd time (twice last week!) so apparently I’m gonna be charged and I cant pay in cash like I ususlly do.
So all of us are gonna have to sign up for this thing whether we like it or not and anyway, I’m more than happy to live my whole life online, been doing everything else online for yonks now.
Figuring that signing up for a video, ‘pay as you go’ account would suit me best, I clicked ‘signup’ and waited an eternity for the ‘Update in Progress..’ message to disappear after every piece of info I put in. I finally managed to get to the end of the huge form and clicked ‘Accept & Submit’ only to be told that there was an error and to contact support!
I tried again in Internet Explorer 6.0 in case it was a browser issue, taking the same eternity to get through it and was told my chosen username and email address already existed! I gave up.
Seems its not only a ‘barrier free tolling’ solution but a ‘signup free’ zone too!
* UPDATE – I’ve now tried 4 times via the site and twice over a dodgy phone line and still havn’t managed to signup! No replies to my support email either…I was told to use a different username and email on the site signup but it remembered my car reg and wouldn’t let me continue!
