Car toll comes without changes

D emnach the request of the red-green governed state of Rhineland-Palatinate to call the mediation committee found no majority. Like North Rhine-Westphalia and Baden-W├╝rttemberg, the state wanted to make changes afterwards, especially so as not to weaken the border regions economically oppose the European idea and is associated with considerable problems for the border regions. There the retail trade fear losses because many day tourists could stay away in the future. In addition, many foreign drivers would avoid the autobahn on federal highways.

Federal Transport Minister Alexander Dobrindt (CSU) defended 'his' car toll against criticism. With the toll income, the infrastructure expansion is secured in the long term.

The cars are now to be introduced on motorways and federal highways as planned in 2016 - an exact time has not yet been set. After deducting the costs, it should bring in 500 million euros per year. There should be no additional burden for German drivers. The car toll is deducted from the vehicle tax. Answers to the most important questions about the car toll are available at here .
