Thank you for your reply.You would have to try to negotiate the fine with them, arguing that you did not use the tollway or showing some proof that it may not have been you and it was someone else using the car during those times (you have to tell them who was using the car though). Other than negotiating with them, I am afraid they will not reduce the amount due. They can agree to a payment plan to allow you to pay off the fine.
In some years, IL has offered an amnesty program for toll violators, but they have not offered one in 2015, you can ask them about amnesty (they waive late fees and penalties) as part of your negotiations. Until you negotiate some payment plan or amnesty with them though, which you can use an attorney to do, they will not release the suspension on your license so an attorney could not file a suspension appeal hearing until those tolls are reduced or paid off.
It is all up to the toll authority though, as they have the power to negotiate to waive penalties and late fees to reduce the amount due and you have to negotiate that with them.
