Weigh In Motion solutions from Kistler enable fair weight-based tolling.

Weight based tolling

The Weigh In Motion (WIM) system KiTraffic Plus for weight-based tolling helps to generate additional revenue for road construction and ensures road usage fees are fair. Based on the “polluter pays principle”, road users are charged a toll according to their vehicle’s actual weight and associated road surface wear.
Thanks to the accurate (up to 2.5% GVW) and reliable Weigh In Motion (WIM) systems from Kistler for weight-based tolling, road owners and operators can sanction weight limit violations immediately and deny overloaded vehicles access to bridges or roads. Using integrated cameras, the KiTraffic Plus system can identify vehicles directly, which allows for levying the toll automatically, without hindering the flow of traffic.
Our fully automated measurement systems transmit data in real time, based on which fines for overweight and fees for using toll roads are calculated depending on the vehicle weight.
