How does your tolling technology work?

On older toll highways, motorists wait at a toll booth to pay a collector or a machine. 407 ETR's all-electronic toll system eliminates these traffic line-ups and searching for the right change. While driving, the electronic sensors located on each overhead tower log your 407 ETR entry and exit point. There is nothing for the driver to do but keep driving. Our electronic tolling system is based on highly-advanced military technology and uses precision equipment aligned with lasers to read a transponder signal and/or take images of a licence plate - even at vehicle speeds greater than 200 km/h.

Please note, the law requires transponders in heavy vehicles which have an actual or Registered Gross Vehicle Weight (RGVW) of over 5,000 kilograms (five tonnes).
