UPDATE -- Habitual toll violators in Grayson County are now going to have to pay up before they can renew their car registration.

Commissioners voted Tuesday to adopt an agreement with the North Texas Tollway Authority to refuse to register vehicles to owners "flagged" by the NTTA as habitual violators for outstanding tolls.

"We don't have to pay anything for it, it's all being taken care of by the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles and the NTTA. We are agents of the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles, and so we're working as their agents to try to help the NTTA," Grayson County tax assessor Bruce Stidham said.

Several counties throughout north Texas are considering similar measures.
