CARBON MONOXIDE IMPACTS OF AUTOMATIC VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION APPLIED TO VEHICLE TOLLING OPERATIONS

This paper examines the carbon monoxide (CO) emission impacts of one such applied ITT (intelligent transportation technology), namely Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI) used to implement automatic tolling. AVI used in lieu of conventional toll booths has previously been identified as an ITT that is likely to offer air quality benefits (Washington, Guensler, & Sperling, 1993a). By allowing vehicles to be tolled either through a windshield displayed debit card, or by some other mechanism, vehicles could forego the deceleration, stop-delay, and ensuing acceleration that results from an encounter with a conventional tolling station. The results presented here are preliminary, and represent the beginning stages of an ongoing research effort.
