Simple English

A toll, in transport, is a charge (a tax or tariff) for the use of a road. On some motorways (freeways) the driver pays at the end of the trip according to how far he has gone. The idea is a very old one. It has been used for hundreds of years, and in many countries.

Here are some useful terms:

  • Toll road, a road for which road usage tolls are charged
  • Toll plaza, a facility where tolls are collected, on modern toll roads, tunnels, and bridges
  • Toll bridge, a bridge for which road usage tolls are charged
  • Toll tunnel, a tunnel for which road usage tolls are charged
  • Toll house, a place where road usage tolls are collected

Also, some other terms:

  • Electronic toll collection is automatic. A signal is picked up by a sensor, and your account is debited automatically.
  • High occupancy toll, a road pricing scheme that gives motorists in single-occupant vehicles access to high-occupancy vehicle lanes
  • Shadow toll, payments made by government to the private sector operator of a road based on the number of vehicles using the road
