HPT

 

13.0 Charges and Manner of Collection:

13.1Electric Power Generation:

The Company will provide Operators with all electricity necessary for propulsion of Grid Vehicles and electronic functions. The Company expects to invest in new energy technologies and, eventually, maintain its own power generation facilities for the production of Grid electrical energy.

13.2Location and Tracking:

Much like ASpeed Pass©@ or similar electronic tolling packages, a transponder permanently installed on the underside of a HPR compliant vehicle could discretely allow law enforcement personnel access to secure information regarding criminal movements. Additionally, a parent, for example, with a discrete code, could monitor the progress of a child operating his or her HPR vehicle on the Grid. For privacy purposes the location and history of an HPR vehicles movement would not be disclosed without proper judicial process or parental request (applying only to HPR drivers under 18 years of age).

13.3Billing:

Each month, the central Grid office will calculate miles driven, the charge for each mile (based on land costs and other variables) and charge each user=s account or credit balance. Distribution of those fees will be made to Operators after Operator franchise fees have been discounted.

13.4Lower Overall Transportation Costs:

As there is no fuel cost associated with miles traveled on the Grid, individual users will find that Grid toll charges are less than the cost of fuel they would otherwise need. Per mile, non-fuel, direct costs of Grid transit will be less than the same costs on typical highways by as much as thirty (30) percent. Even with tolls, Grid use will be significantly less expensive than fuel for regular roadway travel.
