Toll: After the German Maut, also a Belgian Péage in Wallonia?

ITEM in General, Law

After Germany, Wallonia is also thinking about introducing a road toll. A resolution on tolls was recently discussed on 11 February at the Budget Committee  of the Walloon Regional Government.  The intention for the Walloon road toll follows the German idea: a road vignette, with a price differentiated over time. The Walloon taxpayer can deduct the cost of the road vignette from his road tax. The additional revenue is estimated at 50 million euros per year, which is actually paid by foreign car users, including the Flemish.
