OHIO INCREMENTAL STUDY: AN EXPERIMENT IN VEHICLE-TAX ALLOCATION

METHODS OF USING DATA FROM ROAD-USE STUDIES, LOADOMETER SURVEYS, AND TRAFFIC CLASSIFICATION COUNTS ARE DISCUSSED. HIGHWAYS ARE DIVIDED INTO FIVE GROUPS ACCORDING TO TYPES OF PAVEMENT. THESE TYPES ARE DEFINED AS THOSE CAPABLE OF CARRYING AN INDEFINITE NUMBER OF REPETITIONS OF AXLE LOADS OF 19,000 LB., 14,000 LB., 8,000 LB., AND 4,000 LB. IN EACH OF THESE GROUPS OF HIGHWAYS, INDICES OF INCREMENTAL COST RESPONSIBILITY HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED FOR PAVEMENTS, STRUCTURES, GRADING AND DRAINAGE, AND MAINTENANCE. A NUMBER OF CONCEPTS WERE DISCARDED AND THE ANALYSIS WAS BASED UPON AXLE-MILES. COSTS OF RIGHT OF WAY AND OF THE 30 PERCENT OF MAINTENANCE COSTS NOT ASSIGNABLE TO DEFINITE HIGHWAY SECTIONS (SNOW REMOVAL, TRAFFIC MARKINGS, ETC.) WERE ALLOCATED ON A VEHICLE-MILE BASIS. COSTS OF THE MOTOR VEHICLE BUREAU (ISSUING LICENSES, ETC.) AND OF THE HIGHWAY PATROL WERE DISTRIBUTED EQUALLY AMONG ALL VEHICLES. /AUTHOR/
