By 1 July 2015, the BAG (Ministry for transportation) raises fines regarding toll violations for the first time. The toll fee was constantly raised since introduction in 2005, whilst the fine stayed the same. Now it is to be changed. Who does not pay the toll fee on purpose has to be aware of higher fines. Doing so, the BAG wants to decrease the number of toll violations. Roadhauliers who violate the toll fee are fined with 240€ instead of former 200€. The managing director will be fined with 480€ instead of 400€. Giving wrong information about emission class and axis, road hauliers have to pay 120€ instead of 100€ and companys 240€ instead of 200€.
Those fines are valid for all road hauliers and companies operating in Germany.
