Toll Enforcement

Toll Enforcement

Toll enforcement is a critical component to maintaining the integrity of tolling systems, ensuring fair road use, and maximizing revenue generation. This brochure describes the technologies employed in toll enforcement and highlights their importance in achieving efficiency, accuracy, and fairness in toll collection processes.

Further integration of Laser and Lidar technologies empowers toll enforcement with unparalleled precision. These cutting-edge tools ensure meticulous distance and vehicle classification measurements, improving the identification of non-compliant vehicles. Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) technology adds accuracy by detecting overloaded vehicles, ensuring proper toll assessment and safeguarding infrastructure. Artificial intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) algorithms can identify anomalies in transaction data, flagging instances of toll evasion or system misuse. These algorithms learn from historical data, adapt to new evasion techniques, and refine enforcement processes over time. By minimizing false positives and negatives, ML-driven enforcement enhances the effectiveness of toll violation identification. All of these technologies drastically reduce manual labour, they accelerate enforcement processes and enable real-time identification of toll offenders.

Advantages and benefits

  • Efficiency
    ANPR and DSRC automation expedites enforcement, reduces congestion and enhances traffic flow.
  • Revenue Maximization
    Precise toll enforcement minimizes revenue loss so the funds can be directed toward the vital infrastructure projects.
  • Fairness and Compliance
    Transparent enforcement mechanisms and consequences promote fair road use, fostering public trust and compliance.
  • Resource Optimization
    Laser, Lidar, and WIM refine enforcement, allowing authorities to allocate resources strategically.
  • Cost Savings
    Automation reduces manual labour costs and boosts efficiency and operational savings.
  • Real-Time Tracking
    Integrated data sharing enables immediate tracking of non-compliant vehicles, enhancing enforcement’s real-time impact.

While the overall goal of toll enforcement is revenue generation, prevention and fairness are equally important. Overall public perception of toll systems strongly depends on the general belief that offenders are held accountable. Utilizing a combination of penalties, fines, and sanctions, authorities can prevent potential violators from avoiding tolls. Moreover, transparent communication of enforcement mechanisms and consequences contributes to a sense of fairness among compliant road users.

The evolution of toll enforcement is pivotal for toll system sustainability. Tolling stakeholders are taking advantage of ANPR, DSRC, Laser, Lidar, and WIM technologies to enhance the enforcement ecosystem and secure revenue. To leverage the advantages of this evolution we have created a flexible, state-of-the-art, modular Toll Enforcement solution that includes the Enforcement infrastructure and the Enforcement back office system. The solution is under continuous improvement to ensure a fully optimised system.


  • Enforcement infrastructure
    Localized and operated on the road infrastructure e.g. tolled road network, it consists of enforcement infrastructure elements that includes a combination of ANPR, DSCR, Laser, Lidar, WIM technologies
  • Enforcement  back office
    A central enforcement system that performs most of the data processing and additional supporting functions for enforcement infrastructure

The enforcement infrastructure is the crucial part of a Toll Enforcement system and may have specific requirements for different infrastructure elements for which we have created individual products.


  • Stationary enforcement gantry (RSE)
  • Portable enforcement set
  • Mobile enforcement vehicle (MEV)
  • Handheld enforcement equipment

Enforcement back office (EFBO) represents the system that automatically collects, processes and evaluates data from enforcement infrastructure. One of its main purposes is to identify offenders who do not pay tolls and generate evidence that could be automatically transferred to the relevant authorities.
