Allocations of Federal Highway Program Costs to Motor Vehicles on the Basis of the Costs They Occasion (A Classic Incremental Analysis)

This is a federal highway cost allocation study, performed at the direction of the Secretary of Transportation as detailed in the Surface Transportation Assistance Act of 1978. The study includes the following: (1) highway costs that are the consequence of the utilization of vehicles of varying weight and sizes; (2) how much of each cost is attributable to each specific class of vehicles; (3) the necessity for monitoring highway deterioration on a long term basis, to determine relative environmental and traffic impacts; (4) recommendations for alternative equitable tax structures; and (5) the impact that these tax structures might have on the industries and other users that the alternative tax structures would affect.
