Toll discounts offered by Spain to road hauliers who are frequent users of the country’s motorways has brought legal action from the Commission.
The current Eurovignette directive only allows discounts from road tolls where frequent use leads to administrative cost savings. Spain offers 50% discounts to frequent users of its toll motorways, which the Commission says are both discriminatory against non-Spanish hauliers and out of proportion with any cost savings. Spain has three months to respond to the action.
