A system especially adapted for facilitating the collection of tolls on highways, includes the provision of exteriorly visible bar codes or other machine-readable customer account identifications, on vehicles using toll roads. Issuance of the account identification elements enables the customer to pass assigned scanning locations where the elements are machine-read, and verified at a computerized station serving a selected number of scanning locations. Through a computerized network, the scanned data is ultimately transmitted to credit-issuing companies, for billing to the customers who have used the machine-readable elements. The system permits a vehicle to continue past the scan point without stopping, thus offering maximum convenience to motorists, speeding up the flow of traffic, and reducing the number of personnel required at highway toll plazas.
