New toll collection devices required for Czechia
Czechia will change the technology for the collection of tolls for vehicles with a weight of over 3.5 t, effective 1 December 2019. As from this date, vehicles liable to pay tolls will no longer be registered by means of microwave technology but with the help of a satellite-based GSM/GPRS system.
The data will be transmitted to a computer software which will electronically calculate the level of the toll based on the length and the type of road segment used and the corresponding toll rate applicable to the class of vehicle concerned. For the electronic toll collection vehicles will have to be equipped with new electronic toll devices. (ben)
