EU Greenlights Germany’s Plan to Toll Foreign Drivers. Germany’s Neighbors Say, “Not So Fast.”

Deutsche Welle reports, “Brussels now says Germany can proceed with a road charging plan accused of being discriminatory to foreign drivers. The European Union blocked the scheme until Berlin offered a fairer alternative.” The new plan also reduces and caps toll rates.

However, as The Guardian reports, “Neighbouring countries have said the compromise deal continues to discriminate against non-German citizens. The governments of Austria and the Netherlands have said they are ready to take legal action against Germany, and Belgium and Denmark have said they are considering doing the same.”
