HGS Card in Tasucu

We will be getting a ferry from Northern Cyprus to Tasucu.
Can anyone tell me where I can get an HGS Card for the Toll Roads in Tasucu.
I have heard the fines are excessive if you do not have one and end up on a toll road.

Thanks

Re: 2017 Turkey Planning and Weather

Thank you for the update Tom.
Are there any issues with wild camping as we are pretty self sufficient for a few days at a time at least.
I also heard a lot of hotels will allow camping in their car parks, for a cost obviously.
Thanks
