    ELECTRONIC TOLL COLLECTION OR ETC AND TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT OR ETTM, AUTOMATIC VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION OR AVI



    ELECTRONIC TOLL COLLECTION AND TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT (ETTM) SYSTEMS ARE NOT A FUTURISTIC DREAM, THEY ARE OPERATING OR ARE BEING TESTED TODAY IN LOCATIONS ACROSS THE UNITED STATES AND AROUND THE WORLD. ETTM SYSTEMS EQUIP VEHICLES WITH ELECTRONIC TAGS (OR TRANSPONDERS) THAT COMMUNICATE WITH ROADSIDE SENSORS TO PROVIDE AUTOMATIC VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION THAT ALLOWS FOR TOLL COLLECTION AT THE TOLL BOOTH, AND GENERAL VEHICLE MONITORING AND DATA

    GATHERING BEYOND THE TOLL PLAZA. THE INFORMATION IN THIS SYNTHESIS MAY BE EXPECTED TO BECOME OUTDATED AS THE ELECTRONIC TOLL COLLECTION INDUSTRY IS CHANGING RAPIDLY. HOWEVER, THIS SYNTHESIS HAS BEEN PREPARED TO SHARE GENERAL INFORMATION REGARDING ETTM SYSTEMS TO INFORM THE EVALUATION AND DECISION-MAKING PROCESSES.



    ETTM SYSTEMS HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO REDUCE CONGESTION, IMPROVE SAFETY, ENERGY EFFICIENCY, AND AIR QUALITY, AND ENHANCE ECONOMIC PRODUCTIVITY AT A COST SIGNIFICANTLY LESS THAN ADDITIONAL ROAD CONSTRUCTION. AUTOMATION OF TOLL COLLECTION CAN REDUCE CONGESTION AT TOLL PLAZAS. ETTM SYSTEMS CAN ALSO ASSIST IN THE RAPID DETECTION AND CLEARING OF ACCIDENTS, WHICH CAN RESULT IN REDUCED CONGESTION AND SECONDARY COLLISIONS. BY PROVIDING REAL-TIME

    TRAFFIC INFORMATION TO TRAVELERS, ETTM CAN HELP TRAVELERS TO AVOID CONGESTION BY ALLOWING THEM TO DELAY THEIR TRIPS, CHOOSE ALTERNATIVE MODES OF TRAVEL, OR BYPASS CONGESTED ROUTES ALTOGETHER. ETTM ALSO PROVIDES THE CAPACITY TO IMPLEMENT DEMAND MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS BASED ON ROAD PRICING.
