Electronic Toll Collection builds and operates than traditional toll collection
Electronic toll collection (E-Tolls) system objective is to eliminate the delay on toll roads by collecting tolls electronically. Using an ETC system, it is easy to identify whether the cars passing are enrolled in the system, alerts for those cars which are not registered, and also electronically debits the accounts of registered car owners without requiring them to stop.
Most of the ETC (Electronic Toll Collection) lanes are less expensive to build and operate than traditional toll collection methods. With the use of ETC (Electronic Toll Collection) lane the emissions in the area will decrease.
