An impact analysis of electronic toll collection in urban areas was conducted.
- This analysis found up to a 17 percent reduction in traffic due to a road-pricing scheme.
- Most of the population expressed opposition to road pricing schemes, but if the programs were accompanied by reductions in vehicle and fuel taxes, acceptability rises to 61 percent.
