- Truckers and trucking companies view toll roads significantly differently than the average passenger car driver. Travel time savings and avoiding congestion are generally less important than the actual cost of the tolls and their inability to pass those costs to their customers.
- Drivers require more information on toll roads: where they are located, how/where to access them, how to pay for the toll transaction, how much time will they save by taking a toll road versus a free alternative, who operates a given toll road, etc.
- Raising toll rates actually increases revenue while lowing toll rates will increase traffic volumes at the expense of toll revenues.
