Questions or concerns
Road Usage Charge Program; My Charges
Utah’s Road Usage Charge was enacted by the Utah Legislature and is codified at Utah Code § 72-1-213.1. It authorizes a per-mile charge (“road usage charge”) for drivers who voluntarily enroll in it as an alternative to paying the alternative fuel vehicle additional registration flat fee that would otherwise need to be paid annually with vehicle registration. The charge is currently 1.5 cents per mile driven on all roads, but may be adjusted in the future by the State. I will use my prepaid electronic wallet account to pay my charges according to the mileage reported to Emovis via the MRO. My wallet will be funded initially with $15 from my payment card. Mileage fees (1.5 cents times the number of miles driven) will be automatically deducted from that balance as I drive. $10 will be automatically added to my wallet from my payment card each time the balance drops below $5 until a total amount equal to the alternative fuel vehicle flat fee applicable to my vehicle type has been placed into the wallet during my 12-month vehicle registration period. If I remain enrolled in Utah’s Road Usage Charge after my initial 12-month registration period has been completed, my prepaid wallet will reset to the baseline wallet amount of $15 and the process will restart as explained above for the next 12 months. If I enroll in Utah’s Road Usage Charge after registering my vehicle with the DMV for the current year (and thus have already paid the annual alternative fuel flat fee), my wallet balance will remain $0 until my next registration cycle begins, at which point the wallet will be funded at $15 and will be subject to the deduction and replenishment processes described above.
If I am late updating lapsed payment card information, if there are insufficient funds in my account at the time when Emovis attempts to add funds to my prepaid wallet, or if I try to engage in fraud, I may be subject to penalties and interest.
If I request removal of my vehicle from Utah’s Road Usage Charge prior to completing the full 12-month vehicle registration period, I will be charged the difference between the alternative fuel vehicle flat fee amount and my total RUC payments to date during that same registration cycle.
If attempts by Emovis to have me update lapsed payment information are unsuccessful, my vehicle will have a registration hold placed on it and I will be unable to register my vehicle with the DMV until I have updated my Utah’s Road Usage Charge payment information and any outstanding debts have been paid.
Emovis will track and report my vehicle miles driven on all roads using the MRO, but it is my legal duty to report my mileage accurately, and I will remain liable to the State of Utah for all mileage charges I incur even if my MRO is disconnected or otherwise disabled. The annual odometer photo I am required to submit at the end of my 12-month registration period will be used to align my reported miles with my odometer, and any discrepancy found at that time will be corrected so that the miles I am charged for align with the miles shown on my odometer.
Emovis will provide me with access to a web portal that allows me to view information relating to my mileage, monthly account statements, and type of MRO I am currently enrolled with.
I should direct questions regarding my account or transactions charged to my account to the Emovis Customer Service Center at the address, email, and telephone number listed below:
1-855-RUCUtah (1-855-782-8824), Industrial Minillas, #111 – Carr. 174, Suite 1 – Bayamon, PR 00959, firstname.lastname@example.org (from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm MT)
I will receive a notification if Emovis is unable to use my payment card information to replenish the prepaid wallet in the manner described in these Terms. If I fail to update my payment card information within 60 days after receiving this email notification, my vehicle will be removed from Utah’s Road Usage Charge. I will then have a registration hold placed by the DMV on my vehicle. This hold will not be cleared until I have updated my payment card information and paid any outstanding debts owed to Emovis including additional penalty fees.
I will not be entitled to use these Terms as a defense to non-payment of my road usage charges if my MRO is not operating properly unless (a) I promptly and accurately report the malfunction to Emovis and (b) Emovis is able to document the existence of the malfunction. Defective or malfunctioning devices, vehicle malfunctions, improper device installation, or telematics disconnection does not relieve me from liability for road usage charges under the laws of Utah or any other jurisdiction. I am responsible for maintaining a working and properly installed device or telematics MRO at all times. If I fail to report promptly to Emovis that my MRO is not reporting mileage information for any reason, including, but not limited to, improper installation, vehicle onboard diagnostics issues, dead batteries or other device malfunction, telematics disconnection, or failure to comply with Emovis’s instructions after reporting such malfunction, my vehicle may be un-enrolled from Utah’s Road Usage Charge. I will then be subject to the standard exit processes described in these Terms.
Transmission of Data
Transmission of data from the OBD-II device will be completed using a wireless cellular service (the “Wireless Service”), which is obtained through a third-party wireless service provider (the “Wireless Provider”). I will have no contractual relationship with the Wireless Provider, nor will I be a third‐party beneficiary of any agreement with the Wireless Provider. The Wireless Provider will have no liability of any kind to me, including for: (i) any failure, temporary interruption, or disruption of the Wireless Service; (ii) any failure of or incompatibility of the device; and (iii) any lack of security with respect to the Wireless Service. If the Wireless Provider incurs any losses in connection with: the Wireless Provider’s provision of the Wireless Service to me, or your use of the Wireless Service, I will be responsible for payment of any amounts owed to the Wireless Provider as a result and for defending the Wireless Provider against any actions or claims made by third parties in connection therewith.
Transmission of data through the vehicle’s embedded telematic technology will be completed through a back-end connection between Emovis and the OEM through a third-party service provider. I will have no contractual relationship with such Provider, nor will I be a third‐party beneficiary of any agreement with the Provider.
My MRO collects, records, and transmits the following types of driving data to Emovis:
- Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and vehicle communication interface information
- When the device is plugged in or unplugged from the vehicle (if my MRO involves installing a device)
- Regular status updates
- Fuel usage and other emissions related information (if my vehicle is a hybrid or plug-in hybrid and my MRO is embedded telematics).
- Vehicle health (diagnostic trouble codes and electrical subsystem status)
If I am using an MRO that involves installing a device, Emovis will provide me with a device to plug into the onboard diagnostics (OBDII) port in my vehicle. This is the same port that mechanics use for vehicle diagnostics, emissions testing, and other maintenance related activities.
These devices are the property of Emovis. Ownership of and title to any device provided to me by emovis is and will remain with Emovis for the duration of this Agreement. Upon removal of my vehicle from Utah’s Road Usage Charge, Emovis will provide me with packaging that will allow me to return the device to them. I will return the device to Emovis no more than thirty (30) days from my receipt of the packaging.
Emovis will provide one device to me for each vehicle that I enroll in Utah’s Road Usage Charge. Emovis retains all right, title, and interest in and to the device and its firmware. I will not tamper with (that is, alter, modify, change, reverse engineer, copy, or duplicate) the device or its firmware. If tampering is detected, the device will be deactivated, I will return the device to Emovis immediately, my vehicle will be removed from Utah’s Road Usage Charge, and I may be subject to legal action.
I agree that I will not: (i) reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile, alter, duplicate, translate, copy, or create derivative works of the Emovis technology; (ii) sell, license, lease, rent, transmit, publish, or distribute any portion of the Emovis technology to any third party; or (iii) defeat, disable, or circumvent any protection mechanism related to the Emovis technology. The Emovis technology is not intended to be used for, and I may not use it for, safety of life applications or for any other application in which the use of, inability to use, or the accuracy, completeness, or reliability of the Emovis technology could create a situation where personal injury, death, or serious environmental or physical damage may occur.
Putting the Device in a Different Vehicle
Under no circumstances may a device be used in a vehicle that has not been registered as an authorized vehicle under my account. The vehicle, its unique Vehicle Identification Number and its unique license plate must be associated with my account information and a vehicle may not be actively listed on more than one account.
I may withdraw from Utah’s Road Usage Charge any time I wish by visiting the Emovis Customer Service Center online at website, provided that (1) I return the device to Emovis in accordance with their instructions without delay and (2) my payment card information is current at the time of withdrawal such that Emovis is able to charge my payment card the difference between the applicable alternative fuel vehicle flat fee and road usage charges already paid as of the date on which my enrollment is terminated. Emovis will assist me in returning at no cost any devices I have received. Failure to return a device in good working condition and in a timely manner could result in a device non-return charge of $95. Once Emovis has confirmed that the device is in good working order and I have paid all my road usage charges and related obligations, they will unenroll me from Utah’s Road Usage Charge and my rights and obligations under these Terms will terminate with effect from the time of my unenrollment. If any device is stolen or if any of the Utah’s Road Usage Charge services are used fraudulently, I must notify Emovis immediately and provide them with such information and documentation as they may request (including, without limitation, police reports, witness statements, and affidavits). Emovis may suspend or restrict any and all Utah’s Road Usage Charge services without prior notice to me if they have reason to believe I or anyone else has used a device in a fraudulent or unlawful manner.
If my account is terminated, either voluntarily or involuntarily, I will immediately cease using any device for any vehicle enrolled in my name and remove any devices from any vehicle. Using a device while terminated may subject me to violation fees and fines.
Voluntary or Involuntary Closure of Customer's Account
If my account is closed, either voluntarily by me or by Emovis based on my violation of these Terms or of applicable law, all devices listed on my account will be terminated. Emovis may prohibit me from opening subsequent account(s) if any previous account has been closed for violation of these Terms or of applicable law.
Lost or Stolen Device
If a device is lost or stolen, I will notify the Emovis Customer Service Center immediately by phone at (855) 782-8824, by email to email@example.com, or via the Utah’s Road Usage Charge website. My device status will be modified upon Emovis’s receipt of my notice of the loss or theft. I will not be held responsible for future mileage fee activity on a lost or stolen device after the Emovis Customer Service Center receives such notice. Road usage charges for authorized or unauthorized use of the device in any vehicle registered to me will continue to be chargeable to my account until I notify Emovis in accordance with this Agreement. If a device previously reported lost or stolen is reactivated, any unpaid charges recorded while the device was in a lost or stolen status will be charged to my account if Emovis determines the usage was the result of the device being plugged into my vehicle when the charges were incurred.
Dispute of Charges
I must notify Emovis of any disputes of charges appearing on my account within 30 days after the end of the previous month end. For example, if I wish to dispute a mileage amount or charges incurred in the month of June, I must file a dispute no later than the end of July of that same year. All disputes are subject to Emovis review and approval and may require additional documentation or evidence from me.
