Every day, more than 400,000 truck inspections are being done on the correct compliance with the kilometer charge. This means that every truck is checked three times a day on average.
The authorities have three ways of controlling the vehicles:
– Via fixed gantries on the main roads, equipped with cameras and license plate recognition.
– Via movable control cameras
– Via control vehicles managed with control officers
Agents of the regional tax authorities are driving around on the roads to check compliance with the kilometer charge. These persons have the authority to make you pull over and issue fines. Their vehicles are clearly recognizable by the region’s logo and the Viapass logo. Their uniforms also make it clear that they are exercising control on behalf of the tax authorities.
In case of a violation of the kilometer charge, the regions can issue an administrative fine ranging between 100 and 1,000 euros, depending on the severity of the violation.
