An Oak Forest company landed on a recently released list of Illinois' biggest toll violators.
The Illinois Tollway released its Super Scofflaw list of 157 businesses that have skipped out on paying more than $3.6 million is overdue tolls.
The state agency started releasing the list late last month after Gov. Pat Quinn signed Senate Bill 1214, which allows for the publishing of names of toll violators that owe more than $1,000. Eight companies alone owe more than $100,000 each.
Magna Electric Supply Co. Inc., which specializes in industrial supply electronics and computers, ranked 16th in toll fines, owing the state $62,797.25.
Landa Transport, a carrier company based in Frankfort, holds the top spot, owing the state $214,859.10.

Publishing the list is part of a crackdown on those who skip on paying the tolls and an effort to collect the lost revenue, according to the Illinois Tollway's website. Each violator on the list had been contacted at least nine times and was given opportunities to pay the state.
Companies on the list should contact the collection agency through the phone numbers provided on overdue notices.
