IS­LAM­ABAD: An in­no­va­tive plan is be­ing de­vised for com­muters on mo­tor­ways and high­ways to pay their toll tax through mo­bile and credit card. Na­tional High­way Au­thor­ity (NHA) is work­ing on a pro­ject to fa­cil­i­tate com­muters/pas­sen­gers trav­el­ing on mo­tor­ways and high­ways by in­tro­duc­ing a uni­form way of pay­ment for toll tax col­lec­tion which would help in re­duc­ing huge rush at toll plazas and save their time as well. Of­fi­cial sources on Mon­day said cur­rently the Au­thor­ity has in­stalled E-tag fa­cil­ity on M-1, M-3 and M-4 while Fron­tier Works Or­ga­ni­za­tion (FWO) has in­stalled M-tag on M2 (Is­lam­abad- La­hore). The E-tag elec­tronic tolling is based on Ra­dio Fre­quency Iden­ti­fi­ca­tion (RFI) and transpon­ders are us­ing the Ded­i­cated Short- range Com­mu­ni­ca­tions (DSRC) pro­to­col. The sys­tem uses elec­tronic transpon­ders called Etags mounted on in­side of the ve­hi­cles' wind­screen.
