This paper focuses on the quantitative analysis of RFID based vehicle toll collection system. Since we conduct the quantitative analysis long before the implementation of the infrastructure, the approach is realized by the UML and SPN to capture the system dynamics and carry out multiple performance tests of the possible infrastructure. Thus, the performance tests ensure the installation of correct number of RFID vehicle toll collection booth in the entrance of a bridge or a highway so that the traffic congestion can be kept as minimal as possible as well as financial viability can be confirmed. We analyze the response time and throughput to know the maximum limit for the diverse number of arrival vehicles that is served by the different number of toll booths. This finally gives us a better understanding of the number of units necessary for toll collection to decrease the traffic congestion in a budget constraint manner.
