If you're a cash customer for a toll and you use lose your toll ticket or did not get an entry toll ticket then just go through the cash lane and explain to the toll booth operator.

USE cash lanes to exit.
2. Explain the situation to the collector OR the self-pay machine attendant (by pressing the Help button).
3. DO NOT exit via electronic lanes as you WILL receive a violation statement.
4. If you did exit via an electronic lane you (or the vehicle’s registered owner) will receive violation statement. 

You will then maybe pay a slightly higher fee but may not depending on what happened.

I just explained to the toll booth operator what happened and I paid my normal toll and went on my way.

To pay Tolls in Kansas you can either use an automatic toll transponder lane or drive in the cash toll lane and pay cash.

When you go through a toll for cash you will get a sticker or toll paper that you then turn into the other toll booth further down the lane.

Then you pay your cash to the toll booth operator and be on your way.

With the transponder for the toll you drive straight through and it saves you time without having to pay cash.

The cost of a Toll Violation depends on the number of axles on the vehicle and the state you're in.

For example if you go through a Kansas Turnpike Toll and do not pay then the violation will be a flat fee depending on the number of axles.

The fee is usually not very expensive and and if you do go through a Toll without paying you won't get pulled over by police.

But instead you just keep going and a bill will be mailed to your address.

Then you pay the toll violation and if it's your first toll violation you can usually just pay the missed toll and not get a violation bill.

Never back up or try to pay the toll if you pass through it accidentally as it's dangerous and can get you killed.

Just keep going and then pay the toll violation or toll when you get it in the mail.

Here's the information from Kansas Turnpike about Toll Violations.

Violations rate: Whether intentional or not, if a driver exits the Kansas Turnpike using an electronic lane without a valid compatible transponder, the “missed toll” is considered a violation, per Kansas statute, and will be charged the violation rate.

The violation rate is a flat fee per exit depending on the number of axles on the vehicle.

Drivers should use the cash lane or a valid compatible transponder to avoid paying this higher fare.

This rate also applies to Exit 53A tolls that are not paid on the first invoice.
