Israel to hold a Road Pricing Experiment
The Transport Ministry and Finance Ministry in Israel yesterday announced that they will hold an experiment to examine the impact of road pricing on drivers.
A tender to find the company responsible for holding the road pricing experiment will be conducted by Derech Eretz.
The experiment will see 1200 drivers volunteer to have their driving habits monitored, including the time and distance travelled, when journeys take place and where. Each driver will be given $500 per year for participation to participate and will be charged for the journeys based on when, where and how far they travel. The aim of the experiment is to see whether the cost of a journey impacts on a driver's behaviour on where and when to drive.
The experiment could possibly lead to road charging schemes in order to reduce congestion levels in Israel.
