The fixed toll control stations recognise and record tolling data of the vehicles passing through the cross-section. The vehicle-mounted mobile toll control units perform continuous data collection enabling them to control road-use authorisation anytime, at any point of the toll road network. Based on the data collected, it can be clearly determined if a specific vehicle has road-use authorisation for the given road section.
You can easily avoid a fine by observing the rules. If you receive a letter informing you that you have been fined for unauthorised road use and would like to appeal, you can do so with the provisions included in the police letter.
As a result of an important change in the e-toll system for heavy duty vehicles with a gross weight of over 3.5 tonnes, the toll sections designated as detours shall no longer be exempt from toll as of 25 December 2018.
Until the end of 2018, any toll section designated as a detour is automatically exempt from toll. The previous legal provisions did not differentiate between ad hoc and fixed detours, nor was it possible to take into account when someone had already planned to travel on a route that was later designated as a detour.
Considering that in the latter case exemption for the vehicles concerned is not justified, the new legislation eliminates this possibility. At the same time, it also stipulates that in the case of ad hoc detours (in effect for no longer than 31 days), heavy duty vehicles travelling on the detour route shall be exempt from fines even if they have not fulfilled their toll payment obligations for the given road section (i.e. they have not purchased a route ticket or their on-board unit has insufficient balance).
For the time being, the relevant regulations remain unchanged in the e-vignette system, thus no toll shall be paid for the use of otherwise toll sections that the road operator has designated as a detour.
