Types of electronic toll
As you know, if you plan a route through highways containing segments with the option “electronic toll” enabled, a time penalty will be added to the final estimated time of route. (3 minutes for each electronic toll, right?)
Here in Portugal we have 2 different types of electronic toll:
-> Type 1 - You need to reduce speed (Electronic reader) or stop (Manual ticket) to cross the toll.
-> Type 2 - You don’t need to reduce speed or stop to cross the toll.
So there should be a time penalty on type 1 but not on type 2, but there is no way to distinguish them in WME. Because of this lack of feature, sometimes Waze suggests incorrect/misleading routes.
Quick question: Does the presented estimated time on planned routes on Live Map already include this time penalty regarding the electronic tolls or is it added to that estimated time?
Thank you for the suggestion, but this sort of update to the Toll feature is not on the WME roadmap.

Penalties are added to the route to help weigh which is the best route to take by the routing server, but they're not displayed to the user.
If there was a node at the toll point, wouldn't this be automatically included in the route calculation? You would then have the toll time penalty plus the actual extra time it takes to go through the toll?
