Charging by consent

Variably priced toll lanes are continuing to grow in popularity. Known as managed lanes or express lanes, they add capacity to the road and reduce congestion. Florida and California are doing a great deal of work to include managed lanes on their highways. Express lanes are an affordable congestion solution for many transportation agencies, and it is necessary to gather public and political support for these projects. Surveys on public opinion about traffic congestion and road pricing have shown that variable pricing has widespread support, and pilot schemes can help show the advantages of managed lanes to those who are more skeptical.
