SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - A California man has filed a federal lawsuit against the Transportation Corridor Agencies claiming the system’s cashless toll roads are poorly marked, leading to unfair fines.

The Orange County Register reports (http://bit.ly/1VjPVfd ) that attorneys for Ebrahim Mahda filed a lawsuit Tuesday at the U.S. District Court in Santa Ana, saying the collection system on highways and toll roads run by the agencies violates state law and has unfairly collected thousands of dollars in fines.

Mahda’s attorneys are seeking a class-action designation to include anyone who has paid a fine.

An agencies spokeswoman declined to comment on specific allegations, but said she is confident their agencies adhere to the law.

The toll roads have been targeted by a series of lawsuits in recent years, most citing unfair or excessive fines.
