The European Commission announced on Thursday that talks between the two sides had made “very large progress” and German Transport Minister Alexander Dobrindt said there would soon be an agreement which would bring changes to the current toll plan.
The Commission had argued that this therefore unfairly discriminates against foreign drivers, including those from EU member states, therefore violating EU law.
According to DPA sources within the EU, the agreement would mean that the German toll would have to be altered, including a less expensive, short-term pass for commuters and tourists from EU countries. The rebate would also be based on emissions with drivers of environmentally friendly cars getting more of a tax relief, according to DPA.
