Tolls are similar to a tax that only applies to toll road users. Toll roads allow for the construction and maintenance of new roads without raising taxes on the general public. Tolls on roads are sometimes removed once the cost of construction has been recovered from tolls collected. Toll roads are also beneficial to the environment. This will help to reduce both the volume of harmful emissions and transportation costs. Toll roads, like Interstates, are aimed to give a better quality of service than regular roadways. Their limited entry allow for improved security such as no left turns, no red-light running, and a central median barrier to prevent head-on collisions.
How do people pay at Toll Plazas?
The amount of toll is determined by the length of the toll road stretch (usually 60 km). If it is less, you will be charged according to the actual length of the road. Other factors include the infrastructure type and the vehicle’s axle count, load, and so on. As a result, the driver does not have to queue at the toll plaza to pay the toll charge.
