TRAVEL-ACTUATED CHARGING: A NEW TECHNIQUE FOR ROAD PRICING

This article presents a new solution to the technical problem of reducing traffic congestion by road pricing, i.e. charging the driver according to his produced marginal social costs. The traffic-actuated charging system proposed by the authors is based on the characteristic features of the journey's time-distance relationship in congested traffic. Only on-vehicle equipment is needed, and it can be used also for other charges, e.g. ordinary charges per unit distance travelled, charges for high speeds, and parking charges. /Author/TRRL/
