A summary of the consideration of the draft report is now available.
EU countries want to make it easier to trace owners of foreign vehicles that fail to pay road tolls by granting each other access to national vehicle registration data. The Council today adopted a general approach on updated electronic road tolling rules which include a legal basis for such information sharing. The possible administrative or legal consequences will depend on the national law of the country where the failure to pay a road fee took place.
Updated EU rules to fight illegal practices in road transport and to help improve drivers’ employment conditions were approved by the Transport Committee.
