This is worth noting because we can all use a reminder at the start of road construction season to take extra care when driving through work zones.

Those numbers represent, respectively, a 9.8% and a 7.6% increase over the previous three-year average.

Tolling technology comes in two versions: toll by plate and toll by transponder. Both reduce delays and hassles of toll tickets and toll booths. However, toll by plate and toll by transponder accomplish collecting tolls very differently. And those differences can affect a motor carrier’s bottom line greatly. Read about this in the PrePass whitepaper “The Pros and Cons of Truck Tolling by Plate.”
