Internalisation of external costs in road transport (Eurovignette) With great expectations come great responsibilities

CLECAT Press release (May 2008)
“If the Commission is to follow a coherent approach in tackling external costs in road transport, the revenue from charges should be strictly earmarked for the road transport sector. This is the only way to reach the objective of decreasing external costs of road transport whilst maintaining a level playing field with other (competing) modes. It must also be clear that the revision of the Eurovignette Directive is the first step of a process aiming at internalising external costs in all transport modes.”
