Matt Hardigee's Jalopnik article provides some content:
John Hennessey tells Jalopnik he bumped into Texas Lt. Gov David Dewhurst and mentioned he'd maybe have a nice car or two that could be used to test the TxTag toll tag systems of the recently-opened high-speed section of SH-130.
As fellow Texans, the Lt. Gov and officials from the Texas Department of Transportation replied to this wonderful idea in the affirmative and the awesomeness you see here is the result.
The systems worked and captured both the front/rear license plants and the vehicle's toll tag at roughly 180 mph before topping out at 220.5 mph.
