Abstract
With the aim to promote a more efficient use of road infrastructure through charging mechanisms, the European authorities passed the so-called Eurovignette Directive in 1999 (European Parliament, 1999). Following the ?user pays? and ?polluter pays? principles with a special focus on road freight, the Directive promoted the internalisation of external costs thorough the implementation of a harmonized approach of distance-based tolls on heavy goods vehicles (or heavy-vehicle fees, HVF). This approach belongs to a wider transport policy strategy intended to achieve not only a more efficient use of roads, but also a more sustainable transport system by promoting cleaner vehicles and a more stable mechanism for funding roads.
