Reuters first to report Germany aims to introduce car toll across EU

Reuters was first to report that German Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer aims to clear the way for an almost blanket motorway toll for cars across Germany and Europe during the country’s presidency of the European Union. That would make it Germany’s official proposal for its presidency of the bloc. However, some government officials told Reuters that some German ministries wanted to put the project on ice even though a distance-based toll is widely seen as a measure to help protect the climate.
