The article presents an analysis of the methods for calculating damage caused by vehicles engaged in transportation of large tonnage loads on the highways of regional significance in the North-West Federal District. The analysis included a comparison of the region tariff rates. For the analysis, there was used the exponential distribution model. It was revealed that the regions do not have a single methodology for calculating damage, and this brings inconvenience to carriers of oversized and heavy cargo. The authors offer the technique that takes into account the bearing capacity and the wear extent of the highway surface.
