Abstract The Government of the Territory of Hong Kong is the first in the world to propose a system of charging motorists directly for the use of congested roads. Hong Kong has more registered motor vehicles per unit length of road than any other country and the road system is physically separate from China. Despite the scheme's technical proficiency and ability to earn revenue well in excess of operating costs, there is doubt about equity and efficiency. In the end, traffic conditions were not seen to be sufficiently bad so the scheme's introduction has been postponed.
