This book provides an overview of charging policies and legislation, looking at all the options available and assessing the likely effects on both domestic and commercial traffic. Following an overview of the subject, this guide is divided into two sections:
• the legislation and policy behind road charging -- with chapters focusing on the UK and Europe, and on London as a special case, and
• recent practice -- with chapters on road charging models and technologies, and on case studies from the UK, Europe, Australia, the Far East, US, and Canada.
Each chapter provides both a brief review of the subject and a list of key references for further reading. The guide also contains detailed indexes.
