Today, the European Commission published its study for sustainable transport Infrastructure Charging and Internalisation of Transport Externalities. The objective of the study is to assess to which extent the ‘user pays’ and the ‘polluter pays’ principles are implemented in the EU countries both for passenger and for freight.
