    A modest form of congestion pricing is already in place on the and 10 freeways, where drivers who are alone in their cars can pay by the mile to use carpool lanes. Alternatively, when locational marginal pricing (LMP) is used, System Redispatch Payments2 reflect the difference in payments to generators from an ideal uncongested system. Under LMP, customers that import energy incur additional congestion charges in proportion to the difference between energy prices at the generation source and the load.

    ‘ this book provides a comprehensive and timely discussion of the relationships between road pricing and congestion costs.’ – Brian Graham, Local Environment ‘ it is appropriate that the papers provide the most comprehensive coverage of the topic in one volume to date there is a definite need for university libraries to purchase this key reference text’. Interestingly, supporters and opponents of congestion pricing have both expressed concern about the impact a new toll could have on low-income residents (though whether that support is in good faith isn’t always clear). The Seattle Department of Transportation is currently conducting a study to determine how best to implement congestion pricing.

    Congestion pricing has increasingly been seen as a powerful tool for both managing congestion and generating revenue for infrastructure maintenance and sustainable development. By carefully levying tolls on roadways, a more efficient and optimal network flow pattern can be generated. Traffic congestion is a negative externality caused by various factors. A American study stated that there are seven root causes of congestion, and gives the following summary of their contributions: bottlenecks 40%, traffic incidents 25%, bad weather 15%, work zones 10%, poor signal timing 5%, and special events/other 5%. Within the transport economics community, congestion pricing is.
