Abstract

In voluntary programs that encourage social responsible (“safe”, “green”, or whatever) driving, it is possible to implement pricing schemes that more closely reflect the variation of the social marginal cost of driving than can be made with regular (more uniform) taxes and charges. This paper discusses motives for such programs and presents three examples: pay-as-you-drive car insurance, “economic” intelligent speed adaptation, and urban city driving guidance with automatic booking and payment of parking and/or road use charges.
