Can environmental footprint of vehicles be used for road pricing?

The movement of additional goods associated with a single market in Europe will increase rail and road freight traffic and the resulting impact on the environment and infrastructure. To reduce this impact, a better understanding of the dynamic interaction between freight vehicles and the infrastructure and environment is required. The European cooperative project Eureka Logchain Footprint E!2486 aims to develop an innovative and cost effective method to identify road and rail vehicles by means of their environmental "footprint" as characterized by dynamic load, noise, ground borne vibration and gaseous/particle emissions induced by individual vehicles.
