Toll Road
A TOLL ROAD, also known as a TURNPIKE or TOLLWAY, is a public or private roadway for which a fee (or toll ) is assessed for passage. It is a form of road pricing typically implemented to help recoup the cost of road construction and maintenance . Toll roads in some form have existed since antiquity , collecting their fees from passing travellers on foot, wagon or horseback; but their prominence increased with the rise of the automobile , and many modern tollways charge fees for motor vehicles exclusively. The amount of the toll usually varies by vehicle type, weight, or number of axles , with freight trucks often charged higher rates than cars . Tolls are collected at points known as toll booths, toll houses , plazas, stations, bars, or gates. Some toll collection points are unmanned and the user deposits money in a machine which opens the gate once the correct toll has been paid
