Abstract: Using an equity criterion based upon the cost-occasioned user charge principle, this article examines the validity of the weight-distance concept as a basis for highway user taxation. Two conditions that affect the validity of the weight-distance concept are identified. Four major areas, where the validity of the concept may be questioned, are singled out for discussion. In the conclusion, recommendations on the use of the weight-distance concept for highway taxation are presented. © 1987.
