Question #11
Administrative Assistant Security & Crisis Management Dept

What happens if you don’t pay the motorway tolls? Do foreigners have to pay fines too?

If you don’t pay your tolls within the deadline, the Highway Code levies a fine of Euro 87 and docks two points off your licence. You also have to declare who was driving the vehicle at the time, otherwise you have to pay an administrative fine of Euro 292.
As regards foreign vehicles, and there are a lot of them in Veneto and Friuli, collecting unpaid tolls is a problem. To counter this, increased controls are planned, as well as a series of experimental measures which will be put into practice by a task force made up of Polstrada and Autovie Venete.
