Did You Know the 407 Express Toll Road is the first completely electronic toll road in the world. As of 2010 more than 350,000 cars use the 407 ETR everyday making up more than 2.3 Billion total kilometers driven since its opening in 1997.
The 407 ETR is responsible for all its own repairs and extensions so all pot holes, debris and snow removal is done very quickly by its subcontractors.
Since the 407 is less congested than its other 400 series highway counterparts it actually helps the environment. Because the cars are getting from point A to Point B faster and are not sitting at idle in traffic there are less CO2 emissions.
