Weight Based Tolling

The WIM system KiTraffic Plus for weightbased toll collection helps 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. With Kistler’s accurate and reliable WIM systems for toll collection, 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 the toll to be levied automatically, without hindering the flow of traffic.
