Disabled veterans in Texas will not need TxTags to take advantage of a newly adopted program that waives fees for veterans on toll roads operated by the Texas Department of Transportation. Veterans with disabled veteran, Purple Heart of Medal of Honor specialty plates qualify for the free tolls. License plate reading equipment suspended above the toll ways will automatically identify the specialty plates, and veterans do not need to sign up for the program. To receive a disabled veteran license plate, veterans need a 50 percent service-related disability from the Department of Veterans Affairs, or a 40 percent rating due to lower limb amputation. For more information, locate and contact one of the regional offices listed on the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles website.
