Eurovignette Directive : CEMR calls on Parliament to improve proposal
CEMR has published its position paper on the draft "eurovignette directive" on which the European Parliament must vote (17 March).
There are a number of issues of concern to CEMR both in the Commission's proposal and the amendments that have been tabled, in particular:

- CEMR is against proposed amendements that would make the provisions of the Directive apply to all road tolls (including at the local level): this could be very problematic in particular as the proposal currently limits considerably the amounts that can be charged for congestion and pollution

- The need to consult local and regional authorities must be in the legislation
- The directive should specify that the revenue of road tolls can be spent on developing more sustainable modes of transport
- Congestion and environmental problems must be taken into account when setting the tolls.
