Toll wedges between Germany and the EU

The toll toll will open the gap between Germany and the EU: From 1 January 2016, tolls will be charged for all vehicles weighing less than 3,5 tons in Germany, and all roads, not just highways, will be paid.
According to Halis Ateş, the president of the European Union of Turkish Transporters, the practice, which starts at 2016 and imposes a higher wage on foreigners, is contrary to EU legislation and in other countries, vignettes are charged at the same rate as everyone else.
Germany is the country with the longest motorway network in Europe and the second longest in the world after the USA, with its highways of 13 thousand kilometers with no speed limit. Opening the first highway in the world in 2, Germany is defined as the paradise of speed enthusiasts. Another feature of the country is that highway use is free compared to other neighboring EU countries. However, this situation will end from January 1921, 1.
According to the plans of German Transport Minister Alexander Dobrindt, from January 1, 2016, tolls will be charged for all vehicles weighing less than 3,5 tons in Germany, and all roads, not just highways, will be paid. It is estimated that the compulsory fee for car drivers living in Germany will be at most 100 Euros per year. The vignette fee for German license plate owners will be deducted from the annual car tax they pay. Authorities guarantee drivers that there will be no additional financial burden with the vignette fee. Despite this, the Ministry of Transport justifies the practice, which was criticized by the vehicle owners and the car lobby, which is very powerful in Germany, with the construction of new roads and bridges and states that 800 million Euros will be obtained from the road tax annually. This large amount will be obtained from foreign vehicles passing through Germany.
Experts in Germany, annually 170 million vehicles from other countries are passing the transition, this number is increasing every year and in Austria, France, Italy, such as highway maintenance and construction costs for the use of the highway is emphasized that the use of a highway. 10 will be charged for 10 daily vignetting and 20 for two month vignetting. The annual fee will be around the average 80 Euro.
At this point, the problem that is criticized intensely and which will open the gap between Germany and the EU authorities, the drivers living in Germany and the drivers living in the other EU countries will be different. Many experts such as Halis Ateş, President of the European Union of Turkish Transporters, argue that this is contrary to EU legislation, and emphasizes that vignette fees have been paid at the same rate in other countries.
Ismail Ertug, a member of the Social Democrat Fraction of the European Parliament, says that the planned implementation of Germany is not correct because it does not perceive the citizens of the EU equally, and that some countries will rightly attempt to block the EU.
