If the government wants to introduce a new toll tax, the price would not be impacted. Amazing.
Every year, the companies in charge of the management of the motorways have the right to increase the prices of the tolls. But there are still rules to follow, since companies must limit themselves to 70% of inflation rate. Which is still great, while the latter is currently very high. Thus, last February, the price of tolls soared by 4.75% on average, depending on the regions and management companies. And this should still continue, while the government wants to add its little grain of salt.
A tax on highway companies? “We need to invest massively in the ecological transition”, says Clément Beaune, according to whom one of the solutions, “is to ask the most carbon-intensive modes of transport to finance investment in the train”. pic.twitter.com/PzTtij0COK

Indeed, the latter plans to set up a whole new tax, but the date has not yet been officially announced. Transport Minister Clément Beaune explains that the “we need to invest massively in the ecological transition. One of the sources of funding is to ask the most polluting, carbon-intensive modes of transport, the road, the plane, to finance the investment in particular in the train so that there are more trains or that the prices are lower. We saw the urgency of this« .
But then, should we expect to pay even more the toll? Logically, the answer should be yes. But not according to the government. He explains that ” if there is a tax on motorway companies, it has no impact on toll prices. It is legally provided for like that (…) If there is taxation of motorway companies, it does not affect toll prices paid by motorists“. We are reassured!
