An experiment to introduce toll crossings is planned to be held in 2020 in one of the Russian cities.
Paid intersections are likely to appear in Lipetsk, Nizhny Novgorod, or Ulyanovsk, RIA Novosti reported, citing the National Technology Initiative Avtonet.
To get rid of traffic jams will be introduced fare for an intersection or a certain section of the road. Experts believe that every tenth driver will choose alternative paths, and people will begin to plan their trips more carefully. At the same time, the alternative route is likely to be longer.
Due to the introduction of the board, it is planned to reduce traffic in problem areas by 10-20%. Experts emphasize that, on average, the world economy loses 4-15% of GDP due to traffic jams, as fuel consumption increases, transport depreciation increases, working hours get off, etc.
A similar experiment was conducted in Stockholm in 2006, when the authorities established 23 control points with laser radars and cameras, and the money was withdrawn from the driver’s bank account. Traffic jams decreased by 22%, the number of accidents decreased by 10%, and the content of carbon dioxide fell 14%.
