Slovakia

After Slovakia introduced a new toll road system in early 2016, the government now wants to amend the Act on Electronic Toll Collection. The amendment is to reduce fines to EUR150 and places limits on repeat sanctions. Now the fines for driving on toll sections of highways and motorways without e-sticker range from EUR150 to EUR300, for vehicles up to 3.5 tons and payment up to 15 days.

As The Slovak Spectator reports, most drivers on Slovak highways without e-stickers are foreigners – up to 538,000 of 814,000 all unique vehicles noticed from the launch of the system. In August 2016, the number of foreigners increased by 77,000.
