China began canceling tolls on secondary highways in February. The idea is to save time and money for drivers. Now we takes a closer look at the effect this policy is having on local areas.

Fujian is one of the first provinces to try out the toll reduction policy. Transportation companies are benefiting.

This long-distance driver says there used to be a toll gates every 40 kilometers and the secondary highways were usually congested.

Driver said, "After the toll gates were torn down, I can drive faster than before. A three-day journey now needs only two days. Saving time means earning more money for us."

This company has over one thousand trucks and can now save 250,000 yuan each month.
