Germany's Ministry of Transport has prepared a draft law to make highways and highways in the country free of charge for vehicles with foreign plates.
According to the draft law, the highway toll planned to be implemented after 2016 as motosiklet infrastructure fee ”will be taken from cars and caravans, but motorcycles will be exempted from this. The bill envisions that residents in Germany will pay the ne infrastructure fee arac once a year and the fee will be determined according to the volume of the vehicle and how eco-friendly it is.
It is stated that the toll will be the maximum of 130 annually and the average is 74. It was recorded that this amount paid as infrastructure fee will be deducted from the vehicle tax given to those living in Germany every year. It is stated that it is not planned to adhere to the vehicle's windshield, indicating that the toll stamp has been paid, and whether the fee is paid or not, is planned to be electronically controlled by license plate number as it is in trucks.

In the city of Flensburg, the Federal Traffic Office will charge a fee each year for those who live in Germany and pay the owner of the car, which will be charged if no license plate number is registered.
Foreign-car owners who will use the motorways in Germany will be able to pay the toll on the internet or at the gas station according to the features of their vehicles for a period of one month. In addition, 12 for 10 for the day or two months for 10 euro fee is foreseen.

The draft was adopted last year by the pressure of the Christian Social Union Party (CSU), a small partner of the German government. The Ministry of Transport announced that the draft law fulfills the requirements of the coalition agreement, which are considered to be in line with EU law.
Transport Minister Alexander Dobrindt wanted to take charge of the country's traffic network, but the Christian Democratic Union Party (CDU) opposed it. There were controversies in the country that the wage could be against the EU law.
On the other hand, the Transport Minister of Schleswig-Hostein State Reinhard Meyer said that it is not possible to get 500 million euros from the toll. Stating that the German Automobile Club's 260 million-euro income makes more sense, Meyer criticized the toll of the highway and said it was not suitable for modern Europe.
