Trucks to pay for pollution

Published to the CV Show website on
27/10/2010

The EU wants member states to charge trucks for air and noise pollution as well as infrastructure costs.  The idea is to revise the "Eurovignette Directive" to help member states deal with congestion problems better.  The plan offers the opportunity to charge different rates for using the same piece of road at different times of day.  "It is part of a much broader drive to create a 'fair financial' framework for transport where prices for the different transport modes reflect the real costs to society and the taxpayer," according to Siim Kallas, vice-president of the European Commission and responsible for transport.
