Electronic Toll Collection Systems
Many states offer electronic passes that can be mounted in vehicles to automatically pay tolls each time the vehicle passes through a toll booth. Encrypted account information is read by sensors at the toll plaza, and the appropriate amount is deducted from the linked prepaid or billing account.
These systems can help alleviate traffic congestion and reduce time spent in commuting. Additionally, they increase fuel economy, and reduce vehicle emissions by reducing the time spent in lines at toll booths.
