What is it?

What is it  “Highway Unconscious Pay” in China?

Highway Unconscious Payment is a new payment method in China based on the license plate number as the credit, which saves drivers’ time for stopping, waiting and changes giving while passing the highway toll station and achieves efficient access on highway road.



Drivers can link their car license plate numbers to one of their Alipay or WeChat account. When the car is reaching the highway toll booth via a special smart channel (such as Alipay Exclusive Channel), its license plate will be scanned with the help of image recognition technology, and then the toll will automatically deduct the fee in Alipay account.



With regard to the security, the probability of error in car license plate recognition is less than one in 100000. If the recognition error happened, the user would get the full deducted fee returned. Comparing to the traditional ETC channel and system, this “Unconscious Payment” doesn’t even need to be prepaid, and is also more flexible in use.
