Germany plan for road tax

City A.M. Reporter
GERMAN parties negotiating a coalition deal have overcome one of the most divisive issues in the talks, agreeing to a demand by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Bavarian allies to introduce a motorway toll for foreign-registered cars.

The toll was vigorously opposed by the centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) and Merkel herself ruled out introducing it during a televised election debate in September, saying: “There will be no car toll with me”.
