Just imagine the benefits of a bitcoin toll road..

You drive your sedan at 80 miles per hour and 2 miles before the toll road a message pops up in your car's hud saying you would need to pay 100 satoshi to the toll road and asks for your one push payment.



 your car will have a wallet in which you can add funds! you pay the toll even before you arrive there and you don't slow or stop for anything!




How exciting!




This could save lots of time and human manpower! It could be even more exciting with self driving cars!

Issue would be implementation and cars would need internet access (some have but not all) there is rumor of sending bitcoin over radio but i am not sure how far along that is, also things to take in mind is transaction times and fees. This is a very cool idea though.

I'm afraid I'd crash working out how much 100 satoshi is  Grin

I prefer being told I need to pay 0.00100000 Bitcoin or however much 100 satoshi is.  Huh

Then we need the smart steering wheels so while doing 80, we thumb the button to approve and zip right on through.

I think the bitcoin toll option is sweet. I'd love to see that in reality...except for the part I am generally against toll. But still.

You say "anti government" like that's a bad thing...

Or like 90% of people I can use an EZPass and literally not do anything except drive through the toll at 60MPH.

This is an interesting idea, but I don't think it would really catch on. First of all there is no toll road that will only charge 100 satashi for driving on the toll (and as a user the TX fee would be much more then the toll itslef). If you had more realistic tolls, then in order for it to work well we would need to see much high adoption rates. You would also have the issue of knowing which address to send payment to if you are not going to be stopping (this should change for every car and every time a car uses the toll)

First of all 100 satoshi was just an example, it could well be 100 bits..

Then why not the toll both update their public address in the database from which the car could obtain or else, why not a qr code on the road just 5 miles before..

I think  the engineers will figure out!

I think it is a cool idea and will make the transport faster since no need to stop at toll gates.  Grin

Cool idea.But if you really want to sell this idea,you need to address :


What problem the current toll system that is is solved by the OP proposition?

Is this is option offer cost reduction to the consumer/toll operator(both is setting up and daily operations)?

There is already touch and go(no need to stop at toll booth) system employed by many toll operators. How superior to the touch and go technology that  currently exist?


Does a working prototype /pilot project for this system already online or is this a proposal to start development for such system?

Those are just the ones that are currently on top of my head at the moment.

You drive through and the car speaks telling you how much you just paid.
