Jakobsson et al. (2000) found that in Sweden public acceptance of road pricing decreases if it is perceived to be unfair and to infringe on freedom. The present study reports a survey investigating whether the same effects are found in the Asian countries of Japan and Taiwan. The results indicate that fairness plays the same role. However, infringement of freedom may be more important in Japan than in Sweden or Taiwan. Income had a direct effect on acceptance in Taiwan but not in Japan or Sweden.
