The EU's revised Eurovignette directive, which is to harmonise the rules governing road tolls for lorries, has been in force since June 2006, and this publication takes a detailed look at it. It examines which actual repercussions the directive will have and what sort of scope remains for national governments. Readers are given an overview of current road charging schemes in EU countries. The publication is aimed at policy makers, NGOs and other interest groups.
The report is published by the European Federation for Transport and Environment (T&E), which works to promote an environmentally sound approach to transport and mobility in Europe. T&E also criticises the fact that, with its directive, the EU appears less interested in reducing dust emissions and environmental pollution than increasing government revenue.
