In Germany, every car owner will pay the toll: In 2016, the law on the Federal Council of Ministers will pay for motorways and federal roads (Bundesstrasse). Each vehicle owner will pay 130 Euro vignette per year. The fee paid by drivers living in Germany will be deducted from the car tax.
In Germany, the Christian Social Union (CSU), the small partner of the coalition government, made the election promise that the "Motorways will be paid to foreign herds" before the election. The Federal Council of Ministers has passed the law to pay the use of motorways and federal roads. The bill, which is expected to come to the Federal Assembly, does not need to be approved by the states.
EVERY CAR OWNER WILL PAY 130 EURO
The law is expected to be valid as of 2016. In accordance with the laws of the European Union to comply with the law not only foreigners, but also the owners of vehicles in Germany will be charged.
After the law comes into force, a direct letter will be sent to every citizen who has a vehicle registration and the 130 will warn the Euro highway and the federal road fee payments. If the vehicle owner proves that he / she does not use any means that the law is valid, he / she may ask to be exempted by applying to the special commission. The paid 130 Euro fee will be deducted directly from the vehicle tax with a change to the Vehicle Tax Act.
THE CONTROL PLATE WILL BE MADE ON
The vehicles using the roads in question will be made through the plate reading system, whether they pay the vignette or not. There is no obligation to stick the vignette on the windshield of the vehicle. The Federal Transport Minister Alexander Dobrint (CSU), who introduced the draft law to the public, said that the license plate information of the citizens would not be recorded.
ANNUAL 700 MILLION EURO IS EXPECTED
From the use of roads of foreign car drivers, Germany expects annual 700 million revenue. The 200 million euro will cost, Minister Dobrindt said, adding that the 500 million net income will be transferred to road and transportation investments and that it is fixed by law.
THE LOWER 10 WILL BE THE DAILY WINTER
Foreign drivers will be able to get a vignette for 10 journal 10 Euro, 2 for 22 Euro and 1 for the year. Vignettes can be taken over the internet or with gasoline companies and road operations. 12 will start monthly from the day when the vignettes of monthly vignettes will be received.
