Legal basis of toll collection

The German Federal Trunk Road Toll Act, the toll act and the toll regulations constitute the legal framework for collecting the distance-based truck toll. The German Federal Trunk Road Toll Act (BFStrMG), which entered into force on 19 July 2011, specifies, for example, which vehicles are to pay toll on which federal trunk roads, how the toll is collected and how it is enforced. The toll regulations regulate all details of truck toll collection.
