Abstract. In this paper the possibilities of using tradeable permits in the regulation of road transport externalities are explored. After discussing the theory of tradeable permits and some practical applications, we will identify a number of potentially promising applications of their usage for coping with road transport externalities. These include applications on the demand side (user oriented) and on the supply side (automobile and fuel industry).
