Getting the price signals right: why national governments should speed up the adoption of new road charging rules

CER and ERFA call on the Romanian Presidency of the EU Council hand in hand with EU Transport Ministers to support the "Eurovignette" Directive's revision. Clear benefits for national governments include improved fiscal options and the greening of their transport systems, thereby contributing to meeting crucial climate change objectives. The rail sector has proved its commitment to making rail the first mode of choice for customers by undertaking steps to improve its service offer. In turn CER and ERFA call on the national governments to unleash the full potential of eco-friendly rail by getting the price signals right.
