Austria: Prohibition to leave the motorway to refuel

News of the 23/09/2019

For several years, the Tyrol region in Austria has been trying to reduce the number of trucks crossing the A12 and A13 motorways.

Every year, no less than 300 000 trucks pass through this part of Austria, and the head of the region Günther Platter put in test since this summer the prohibition to leave the highway to refuel fuel.

Until now, trucks have been used to refuel along national roads where fares are cheaper.
