France defers “ecotaxe” until January

The introduction of an eco-tax on heavy goods vehicles that use toll free national trunk roads in France has been postponed until 1 January 2014, for technical reasons. HGVs that use roads in France have to be equipped with special technology and registered for the “ecotaxe” (Taxe Nationale Poids Lourds). To date only around 20,000 vehicles out of a total of 600,000 – 800,000 trucks that are subject to the new tax have been registered. The new road pricing scheme will apply to all commercial vehicles of 3.5 t and over. (ben)
