Dynamic road pricing: is it worth the price?

Economically seen, it makes sense to vary the cost of using the road with the availability of road capacity. Politically, it is difficult to implement in The Netherlands. Road pricing should lead to a better dsitributed load of traffic over the day and so to less congestion. Although, there may occur side effects which compensate the improvement. Road pricing comes in many forms. The question is which form is best suited for The Netherlands and what are the effects?
