TRL has undertaken a review of tolling and Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) aspects of the US National Architecture (NA) on behalf of Department of Transport (now Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions) Tolling and Private Finance Division (TPF2).

A number of recommendations are made concerning the development of DSRC information services and development of standards for tolling.
