IRU Position on the Commission proposal relating to the interoperability of road user charging systems, (2004)
In this position, the IRU expresses its support in principle for an efficient, interoperable toll collection system, while underlining that charges for road use implies additional costs and administrative burdens for operators. The IRU therefore calls for tolls and toll-collection systems to explicitly seek to reduce these costs as much as possible. With regard to the technology for registering road use, the IRU is in favour of a cheap, technically reliable and tamper-proof system, such as the GSM/GPS-based system.
