German highway toll for cars breaches EU law -EU court

LUXEMBOURG, June 18 (Reuters) - A planned German highway toll for cars discriminates against foreign drivers and breaches EU law, the European Union’s highest court said on Tuesday.

The European Court of Justice backed a challenge from Austria that the system was set up so that the economic burden fell solely on drivers of vehicles from EU countries other than Germany. (Reporting by Philip Blenkinsop; Editing by Catherine Evans)
