Three languages have been added to the list of languages in which the services of ‘kiosks’, i.e. the route planning devices located at the points of sale of the pay-as-you-go electronic toll charging system (HU-GO) are available. The National Toll Payment Services Plc. has opted for the addition of new languages to the existing package based on the toll declaration statistics of foreign road users. For years, Bulgarian, Serbian and Slovenian hauliers have represented a high ratio of route ticket buyers.
Two important changes are being implemented by NTPS Plc. in connection with the HU-GO pay-as-you-go electronic toll collection system. The minimum value for low-balance warnings is changed to HUF 6,000 across the board in order to reduce the number of fines. Moreover, registered users will now be able to assign a phone number to each vehicle in order to enable the driver of the vehicle to be notified in the case of a failure of the on-board unit or any other technical defect.
From 4 April, freighters must pay even more attention if they use an on-board unit (OBU) for toll declaration in the HU-GO distance-based electronic toll system. On the basis of the statutory authorisation, a database of invalidated on-board units is to be introduced, which will include OBUs that cannot be used for proper operation e.g. due to insufficient funds in the account. The system of penalties will not change, and if you pay a bit more attention, it is still very simple to avoid toll fines.
