  15. 15. Russian GLONASS System from 2009 From 2009 the public passenger transport in Russia will be equiped in GLONASS system what means that practically all bus drivers will be under control. In other countries and cities where this system has been already implemented (in Tatarstan and partly in city Rostov) the accidents level was reduced to minimum. The system allows to measure the speed, to turn off the engine, to measure the engine temperature and internal temperature in the bus as well as to see the passengers number.
  16. 16. Tolled and untolled roads in Europe in 2007 Source: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=493787 Jan Burnewicz, 2008
  17. 17. European desintegration of road pricing systems [2008] Jan Burnewicz, 2008 Euro Vignettes Connection System The Euro vignettes for motor vehicles are to be used for express highways and select national highways in the network of Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Denmark, Sweden. Since the time of Germany's exit from the network mid-2003, the network of euro vignette locations has reduced remarkably: from what was once a total of 5,000 locations, there are only 260 working locations now.
  18. 18. CZECH MOTORWAY FEES Since 1995, motorways and expressways in the Czech Republic have been subject to a fee paid via coupons. From 2007, vehicles over 12 tonnes must pay via electronic toll . Motorcycles are exempt from payment. Operation of the electronic tolling system in the Czech Republic is based on modern microwave technology. Vehicles that are subject to the toll must be equipped with a small electronic device - the premid unit- which communicates with the tolling system. When passing through a toll gantry, an acoustic signal from the onboard electronic device - the premid unit alerts the driver that the toll has been properly recorded. The driver can use any lane without having to reduce the vehicle's speed or stop. The tolling process is fully automatic and requires no intervention on the part of the driver. Electronic toll has been paid by vehicles weighing 12 tons and more on 970 km of motorways and express roads in the Czech Republic. Karel Feix of Kapsch which operates the electronic toll collection system in the Czech Republic said 105 000 trucks have been equipped with on-board units. Jan Burnewicz, 2008
