An amnesty program aimed at getting motorists to cough up the cash they owed for Crescent City Connection toll violations cost Louisiana almost $225,000 more than it brought in, according to a report from the state Legislative Auditor’s Office.

The report, which examined how funds from the CCC tolls have been used since the tolls ended last year, also found nearly $6.6 million remained unclaimed in an account set up to refund money to motorists who used Geaux Pass toll tags at the end of December, the period looked at during the audit.
