Germany has announced plans to tax the millions of foreign motorists who use its roads, including the famous autobahn highway, from 2016 onwards.

Transport Minister Alexander Dobrindt said the levy should raise 2.5bn euros (£1.98bn) over four years.

Vehicles will be issued with badges, costing between 10 euros for 10 days and about 100 euros for a year-long permit.

Critics of the planned toll say it violates EU anti-discrimination laws.

While vehicles registered in Germany will also have to pay the charge, their owners will be compensated by an equivalent reduction in a separate car tax.

The information I have seen is that it is motorways (Autobahns) only, same as France.

UK is doing the same for all large foreign good vehicles. They now have to pay at point of entry.

Action is proposed to join up DVLA and The Border Agency to track foreign vehicles that stay here for more than 6 months. Border Agency have their details as they enter the country.

Sounds just like a vignette but for all roads?

If so, a 10 Euro charge for 10 days won't stop me visiting Germany. Just like it doesn't stop me visiting Switzerland or Austria.
