Only drivers with New Jersey-issued E-ZPasses will get an off-peak discount.

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 raod authorities have been making similar charges.

Only New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority and New York STate Thrusway 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 int he state to get a transmitter from there.
