Germany’s Plan for Tolling Foreign Cars Sparks New Round of Controversy

Handelsblatt reported, “Germany’s controversial move to a system of distance-based tolls for foreign cars using German highways will be more expensive than planned and will not start until at least 2020, according to internal documents seen by Handelsblatt.” Within hours, Reuters carried a denial of the story by the German transport ministry, which claims that procurement documents seen by Handelsblatt are still under development.
