1 DEH CHO BRIDGE PRESENTATION TO MOTOR CARRIERS October 2012

2 INTRODUCTION Benefits of Deh Cho Bridge Overview of Tolling System – Toll Structure – Infrastructure – Enforcement/Regulation Questions and Comments

3 Year Round Uninterrupted Access Reduced Vulnerability to the Effects of Climate Change Reduced Energy Consumption and Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Trucking and Ferry Operations Reduced Risk of Fuel Spills Reduced Cost of Living Increased Economic Development, esp. from Tourism Reduced Sense of Isolation OVERALL BENEFITS

4 Reduced Down Time for Equipment Greater Certainty for Supply Chain / JIT Delivery Increased Cycle Time Reduced Fuel Consumption - Emissions Increased Competitiveness with Southern Firms Shortened Delivery Time 24 Hour Service Reduced Warehousing Costs INDUSTRY BENEFITS

5 PRE-CLEARANCE Partners in Compliance Program (PIC) Motor carrier safety program initiated in Alberta that rewards motor carriers with exemplary safety records. The Department of Transportation has signed an MOU with the Alberta Motor Transport Association to expand PIC to the NWT. The transponders used in the Deh Cho Bridge tolling system are also being used to support the PIC program in Alberta.

6 INFRASTRUCTURE

7 COMMERCIAL TOLL

8 TOLLING – Northbound Commercial Vehicles > 4500 kg. – Number of Axles Category# of Axles A2 to 4 B5 and 6 C7 and greater

9 Category# of Axles Remittance Transponder Equipped Single-use Toll Permit A2-4$75.00$91.25 B5-6$150.00$ C7+$275.00$ TOLL RATES/COLLECTION

10 Benefits of becoming a Toll Remitter – Lower costs of toll permit – Remit payment monthly Remittance documents available online at REMITTANCE AGREEMENTS

11 Required for Self Remitting Transponder Industry Standard Unique to Each Vehicle. TRANSPONDERS

12 Transponders must be registered with International Road Dynamics (IRD) – To register a transponder with IRD, clients must provide: – Vehicle registration information – photograph of the passenger side of the vehicle TRANSPONDERS

13 INFRASTRUCTURE Enterprise Scale Transponder Check Future Pre-Clearance

14 TECHNOLOGY Transponder Axle Count Weight Photos

15 On Road Enforcement - Focus on non-remitting carriers Electronic Enforcement - Focus on carrier compliance ENFORCEMENT

16 Automated Analysis - Vehicle Registrations - Permits, Toll, Fuel Tax - Over-dimensional/overweight Permits - Speed AUTOMATED ENFORCEMENT

17 $1,725 Failing to pay or arrange to pay for toll. $2,875 Evading, obstruction, interfering or tampering with tolling. $575 Obstructing a Transport Officer $115 Failing to display owner information on the side of your vehicle. FINES
