Weight tax and taxes on HGV traffic in Europe
According to the CITEPA, in 2017, HGVs accounted for 5.7% of total CO2 emissions in France and roughly 20% of annual CO2equivalent emissions in the transport sector. In addition, a significant share of negative externalities related to the road (pollution, congestion, noise, etc.) is due to HGVs which damage roads more than passenger cars. However, goods carriers do not contribute to road network maintenance proportionately to their effect on it. This inconsistency further complicates the funding of mobility. In view of this inconsistency, effective solutions have been implemented for several decades.Learn more / Download
