the phone and postal services for the Dart Charge seem quaint and
indulgent compared with the toll roads in eg Sydney where it's electronic
or else - including for visitors in hire cars.

The postal service is only for pre-pay, and needs 10days notice. I'd
characterise it more as applying for a season ticket by post (even if it's
only a one-trip season being paid for).

I wonder if it's mainly for institutional vehicles, where arrangements for
reimbursing drivers small amounts of money are either non-existent or very
clumsy, and they don't want to have a system for drivers to report each
trip as it happens, and the finance department pay the charge from central
funds rapidly enough.

surely if the institutional vehicle belongs to the institution, they can set
up an online account that does all this
