Faced with the problem of increased traffic congestion, governments need to find a way to restrict road use to essential traffic and to raise money to finance new road building. One option adopted by many countries, with varying degrees of success, is the use of toll roads or more complex methods of road charging. This guide provides an overview of charging policies and legislation, looking at all the options from toll roads to sophisticated road pricing schemes. It analyzes the viability of each option, assesses the technical issues, and looks at the likely effects on both domestic and commercial traffic.;Following an overview, section one examines the legislation and policy behind road changes (with chapters focusing on the UK and Europe and on London as a special case). The second section then looks at recent practice (with chapters on road charging models and technologies and on case studies from the UK, Europe, Australia, the Far East, the US and Canada). Each chapter provides a brief overview and a list of key references for further reading.
