Roadco Company has been hired to collect tolls for the Blue Ocean toll road. Robert Asphalt, the controller of Roadco, has been analyzing the situation and has come up with the following pieces of information:
a. During rush hour, commuters must presently wait in line for approximately 40 minutes at the main exit from the toll road.
b. Estimates show that during the rush hour 95% of all cars
on the toll road are driven by regular commuters.
c. The technology is available for the inexpensive creation of electronic smart cards that are capable of radiocontrolled communications directly with the toll booths.
