Downturn blamed for fall in truck toll revenue

There was a fall in the amount of money collected from an electronic tolling system for heavy trucks on Czech motorways in 2009, a spokesperson for the system’s operators told the Czech News Agency. The total raised last year was around CZK 5.5 billion, some 600 million less than in 2008. The decrease has been attributed to the economic downturn. The toll, which was introduced in 2007, is levied on all lorries weighing 12 tonnes or more.
