Austria takes Germany to European court over road toll

VIENNA: Austria is taking Germany to the European Court of Justice over German road toll plans, Austrian Transport Minister Joerg Leichtfried said on Thursday.

The German toll applies to foreign-registered cars using the country's highways at a cost of up to 130 euros (£116.5) a year. German drivers will be able to recover the costs through tax deductions.
