Tolls on trucking in Belgium alone, net 2.4 million Euro a day

The levy is coordinated by Viapass, interregional entity that regulates the toll and controls for the three regions.

Viapass estimates the number of users of the on-board units (OBU) at 800,000, of whom 150,000 Belgian users.

The OBU will determine via satellite and an integrated card system where the truck (from 3.5 tonnes) is located, and thus determine the charge.

The monitoring will be done through some 40 units mouinted on the roads, which to register using cameras trucks. In addition, 22 mobile control systems will be similar to a mobile speed camera.
