Pilot testing of the technology will start on select highways. The GPS-toll collection system tracks a vehicle's movements and calculates toll charges based on the distance covered, offering a more equitable approach compared to fixed tolls. It also eliminates the need for cash or change, as the toll amount is automatically deducted from a linked account using a secure electronic payment system. This initiative aims to alleviate traffic congestion and enhance the accuracy of toll collection.
