Abstract
The charging systems presently being used in toll facilities impose discomfort

and inconvenience to patrons, in terms of delay and stops.

This report presents an analytical method to estimate delay and stops in toll

plazas. These variables are then utilized to evaluate user costs and toxic gases

emitted in toll plazas. A large amount of information on highway user costs was

collected and synthesized to be incorporated in this economic evaluation.

Recommendations on the amount of toll that should be charged to take into

account user costs induced by toll plazas are given in this report.
