V-Tolling Technology: How It Works

What is v-tolling technology? V-tolling technology is an innovative way for drivers to pay for road, bridge and tunnel tolls without having to stop at manned toll booths. It uses various methods like RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags, automatic license plate recognition and GPS tracking to allow vehicles to move through toll lanes without having to stop, reducing congestion and increasing traffic flow. It is also a cost-effective and more efficient way for toll agencies to collect payments as it eliminates the need to hire and maintain manned toll booths.

The equipment used for v-tolling includes toll gantries with RFID or ALPR systems that are linked to electronic toll collection software. The RFID systems work by capturing and identifying vehicles with transponders or a valid license plate image, while the ALPR system identifies vehicles that do not have an active RFID tag or that enter the lane without a valid transponder. Typically, the v-tolling lanes are marked for motorists who have pre-registered accounts with the toll authority.

Generally, v tolling systems are secure and safe to use. All information captured by the tolling agency is encrypted to prevent unauthorized access. However, drivers should be aware that their personal information may be shared with third parties and should review the tolling agency’s privacy policy.
