Legal basis of toll collection
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 German government is authorised by the German Federal Trunk Road Toll Act (BFStrMG) to determine the toll rate via a legal regulation. Until the introduction of a new toll rate regulation, the toll rate is determined according to the German Federal Trunk Road Toll Act (BFStrMG). The toll regulation regulates all details of truck toll collection.
