Experimenting With Discounted Trucker Tolls

Delaware transit officials try reducing toll prices for trucks during off-peak hours on one of the nation's busiest highways in an effort to ease congestion.

"The 24-mile stretch of I-95 between the Maryland and Pennsylvania borders is a 'chokepoint' on I-95, one of the nation's busiest freeways and a vital link for commerce and travel throughout the Atlantic coast... Highway authorities around the nation have implemented "variable tolls" on highways to discourage travel during peak times and encourage it at slow times. But only a few other toll roads have implemented sharply discounted tolls specifically for truckers."
