Road pricing is a generic term for charging the users of a specific section of the road network for its use. Examples include traditional methods using toll booths such as turnpikes and toll roads, as well as more modern schemes employing electronic toll collection.
Congestion charging systems are without doubt the future of city billing systems, implemented to reduce the number of vehicles, and ensuring that those using the valuable and congested road space make a financial contribution. It also encourages the population to opt for public transportation rather than use private cars, making journey times quicker and more reliable for those who have to use the roads. It all benefits the environment.

• Fair system where road users make a contribution to road maintenance• Less pollution• Less road congestion• Quicker journey times
