Germany has introduced a road toll which requires foreign car drivers to pay up to EUR 130 a year for using the country’s motorways.

The new fee, which will is scheduled to take effect in 2016, aims to secure funds for the maintenance of transport infrastructure, according to reports of EurActiv.

The fee will vary depending on the cylinder capacity and environmental compatibility of the vehicle, the maximum amount being EUR 130 a year.

Foreign drivers will be able to pay a 10-day toll of EUR 10 or a 2-month toll for EUR 22.

The newly approved toll may still be revoked over its incompatibility with EU law provisions prohibiting discrimination against foreign motorists.
