ERP - Electronic Road Pricing

This is something started in Singapore and has caught on in many countries. It is called Electronic Road Pricing. During peak hours, you pay if you want to use the roads.

This photo shows the rate for entering Orchard Road.

London in recent years also introduced something similar, and they called it Congestion Charge.

An interesting idea. We have mostly toll bridges and a few toll roads here. I am all for eliminating traffic congestion, but does collection cause even more slow traffic?

All vehicles in Singapore have an in-vehicle unit, which is a machine that will deduct the fee when you pass by the gantries, cars do not stop at all.

I hope nobody in our government seeing this. I guess it makes more congestion in other road.
