Why can TOLL be claimed?
The Court of Justice of the European Union confirmed in its judgment of 28 October 2020 that Germany cannot add road police costs to tolls for the use of the trans-European road network by heavy goods vehicles.
The Court found, first of all, that Member States which introduce or maintain tolls on the trans-European road network are required to set the level of those tolls taking account only the infrastructure costs, namely the construction, operation, maintenance and development of the infrastructure network concerned.
This judgment confirms that hauliers who have paid tolls in Germany can claim partial reimbursement of this charge.
The ruling in question was based on a preliminary question. Judgment of the Court of Justice of the European Union of 28 October 2020 – C-321/19.
