A research program has been conducted to assess whether the perceived problems with real-time charging of suboptimal decisions and unsafe driving practices would occur in reality, and, if so, how they might be reduced. The program studies the drivers' responses to a range of road user charging structures, and identifies various ways of reducing any negative impact of real-time road user charging systems. It considered four charging regimes, namely, fixed cordon charging, fixed distance-based charging, real-time time-based charging, and real-time congestion-based charging. The results of the experiment are presented and were used as input to model-based network analyses.
