As highways, crossing points, and urban streets become increasingly jammed with traffic, more and more roadway authorities are turning to electronic tolling and pricing to manage traffic and road usage. This authoritative book offers professionals expert guidance in planning, procuring, and operating electronic tolling and road-user charging systems. It cuts through a seemingly confusing array of technology solutions so analysts and engineers can match the right technology to policy. Moreover, the book clearly explains pricing and traffic management principles so planners can easily establish and change policies and pricing schemes. This practical volume focuses on established and emerging technologies used in charging, enforcement, and classifying vehicles, and it comprehensively covers privacy, legal, trade, and other regulatory issues. The book presents case studies from around the world that detail best practices for pricing, managing traffic demand, and developing local, regional, and cross-border pricing and tolling policies.
