Automatic motorway toll collection

A functional specification for automatic debiting, which meets the requirements of the motorway operators of France, Italy and Spain for automatic toll collection, as well as the Rijkswaterstaat for road pricing, has been produced. The advent of automatic debiting technology and automatic ticketing opens the possibility of a better sharing of costs among all beneficiaries. One can distinguish between the suppliers of transport services, the users, the beneficiaries and the payers where users, beneficiaries and payers need not necessarily be the same people. To achieve global safety, environmental and efficiency goals it is necessary to adopt an appropriate pricing policy, which essentially means that all beneficiaries should be taken into account.
