Abstract

One way of mitigating the negative effects of noise from road traffic is to include the
external cost of noise in a road charging system. This study shows how standardized calculation
methods for road traffic noise can be used together with monetary estimates of the social cost of
noise exposure to calculate charges based on the social marginal cost. Using Swedish data on
traffic volume and individuals exposed to road noise, together with official Swedish monetary
values for noise exposure, we estimate road-noise charges for cars and heavy vehicles.
