Has the toll of the highway increased since the new ETC system was launched?
From January 1, 2020, all 487 highway toll booths in 29 interconnected provinces across the country have been cancelled. High-speed charging standards have also changed. The following points require your understanding.
Model classification is different from before
The new policy relaxed Class 1 buses to a length of no less than 6 meters. The 8-seat and 9-seat small buses that originally belonged to Class 2 buses were adjusted to Class 1 buses, so the high-speed toll has been significantly reduced. It is worth reminding that Owners of 8- and 9-seater minibuses need to update the ETC vehicle information in time to enjoy the toll reductions brought by the new policy.
For trucks, trucks are classified according to the total number of axles, vehicle length and total mass. Among them, a two-axle truck with a length of less than 6 meters and a total mass of less than 4.5 tons is a type 1 truck (blue card); a vehicle with a length of 6 meters or more or a total weight of 4.5 tons is a type 2 truck (yellow card); Three- to six-axle trucks are classified into 3, 4, 5, and 6 categories.
High-speed toll model is different
In most provinces, the toll model was based on the shortest route. Multiple highways can be selected between the two places. When charging, the shortest calculation is used. The same price is used no matter how you go. However, in accordance with the principle of using more roads to collect more money and using less roads and less to collect money, starting January 1, 2020, the national highway toll system will be unified to a mileage-based segmented charging model , ETC (electronic toll collection) Vehicle toll figures are accurate to cents, and MTC (manual toll) vehicle tolls are accurate to yuan. After accurate billing based on kilometers, the actual toll will be more or less different from the original.
In terms of trucks, the new policy will be changed from the original "weight-based charging" to "charging based on mileage". Different vehicle (axis) types have different charging standards. The same vehicle (axis) type, regardless of how many are installed, will be unified. Standard payment.
In order not to increase the burden on the owner and not let the high-speed company suffer, it is necessary to find a "balance point" between no-load and full-load. At present, the "balance point" determined by different highways in various provinces and cities across the country is not the same, and the toll is determined The standard belongs to the local authority, but the Ministry of Transport has clearly stated that it will conduct in-depth research and analysis on the rate adjustment schemes of various places and achieve a reduction of at least 10% from the full load of trucks.
If you do n’t have ETC, consider setting up one.
In order to respond to the national policy, to achieve convenient and non-stop traffic at provincial boundaries, cancel provincial toll stations, other toll stations have increased the proportion of ETC lanes, and at least one artificial / mixed lane has been reserved. At present, all types of vehicles on highways have been installed. The proportion of activated ETC exceeds 60%, and the proportion of ETC lanes at each toll station has reached 80%, which indicates that there are still 40% of non-ETC vehicles that need to squeeze 20% of artificial (mixed) lanes, which may cause Lanes are heavily congested.
ETC balance insufficient to recharge as soon as possible
After canceling the provincial toll station, when the ETC vehicle passes the ETC mast, the mast system will automatically read the information and deduct the corresponding fees. If ETC is bundled with a stored value card, this deduction mode may cause the stored value card balance to be running. Detained on the way. In this regard, the relevant departments responded that if the ETC stored-value card user is deducted during driving, it will not affect the passage and will not be intercepted at the high-speed exit, but they must be recharged as soon as possible, otherwise they will take the ETC channel next time Entry into the highway is prohibited.
Do you think it's a bargain? Actually not
Many netizens on the Internet reported that after the implementation of the new system, when driving through the ETC channel, they found that the toll on the electronic display screen was only a few yuan, or even less than 1 yuan. Actually, it was because the national highways implemented segmentation through the ETC gantry system. Toll, the ETC mast charges the main line fee, and the entrance and exit toll station collects the on-ramp fee. Therefore, the fee displayed on the ETC lane display is not the entire cost, but only the on-ramp on-ramp traffic . Experts say that there is currently no way to technically achieve the display of overall costs at the exit.
Do you think you lost a lot? Don't panic
Recently, a netizen paid a full toll of 160,000 days from Beijing to Hengshui. The driver drove a 4.2-meter truck and was an unloaded vehicle. After the incident, it was verified that the actual toll of the car was 172 yuan, because Carry did not With so much money, it didn't succeed. In this regard, some people have said that a new system may run erratically in some localities, and the large amount of bills transmitted via the Internet are abnormal. We will ask for the priority to ensure that the vehicles pass first, and then register the car number in the background. After investigation and verification, we will deal with it strictly according to the standard. If we do pay more, we will contact him. The money to be refunded will be returned to the owner. .
Summary: The reform of the expressway has brought more convenient conditions for people to travel. It is believed that some problems will be gradually solved and improved after the implementation of the new regulations.
