Clearly, he should pay the whole freight, both legally and morally. However, it's your vehicle's license that will be jeopardized if the violations aren't paid in full. The tollway doesn't care about what your deal was with your friend. Their rules apply to the licensed vehicle, not to the social arrangements of who was driving it and why. I'd suggest that if your friend won't pay the bill, that you're going to have to do so and either get it back from your friend or find a new friend that won't stiff you. Good luck!

You are responsible for tolls on your car, just like you would be responsible for parking tickets. These fines attach to the owner of the vehicle - not the driver.
Every case varies depending on the law and the facts. Because questions often fail to disclose important facts, these 'answers' cannot and should not be relied upon as a replacement for a full or complete review of an actual case by a retained attorney. It is axiomatic that one only 'gets what they pay for', and this is one of those situations where such a phrase generally applies.
Pay the fines, because if you don't the money increases rapidly and they will suspend your license, not his.
