Google Maps claimed that users will be able to see how much they will have to spend if they take a particular toll road. The options will allow users to make more informed decisions. Also, depending on toll-free road conditions and weather, users may want to pay toll taxes to avoid traffic jams and travel delays. The new feature will come in handy in such situations. Moreover, users can also plan a roadtrip well in advance with the right budget with the toll estimates.
