The Transport Ministry doesn't intend to introduce electronic road tolls for passenger cars within the present government’s four-year term, meaning that so-called motorway stickers will remain in use, Transport Minister Ján Počiatek (Smer) told the TASR newswire.
At the moment, vehicles weighing more than 3.5 tonnes pay road tolls via an electronic system that was introduced in early 2010. The electronic road-toll system covers around 2,000 kilometres of motorways, dual carriageways and first category roads.
