I believe complete or partial Electronic Tolling should be implemented at all toll booths.
Anyone from the Bay Area and remember the difference that FasTrak has created? FasTrak is an electronic toll collection system which operates with the use of a toll tag and special equipment installed in the FasTrak lanes. The lane equipment reads the tag information and the number of axles on your vehicle. This information is used to deduct the correct toll amount from your account balance.
On our end FasTrak is a little plastic device you throw at the end of your dashboard that automatically deducts your account rather than hassle in your seat looking for spare-change and cash in any form. Whether you or the driver in front of you in traffic is frantically looking for spare-change it will create congestion before the toll; at the end of the day you're going to get to your destination a lot faster with FasTrak. FasTrak also lowers the amount deducted for bridge toll thanks to the savings in employment.
Currently FasTrak is used on all lanes of the Golden Gate bridge, but other bridges in the Bay use partial Electronic Tolling. FasTrak can also be used on several Southern California toll roads in Orange and Riverside Counties
Electronic Tolling has definitely changes the game for Transportation Planners/daily commuters/and drivers alike.
