Three languages have been added to the list of languages in which the services of ‘kiosks’, i.e. the route planning devices located at the points of sale of the pay-as-you-go electronic toll charging system (HU-GO) are available. The National Toll Payment Services Plc. has opted for the addition of new languages to the existing package based on the toll declaration statistics of foreign road users. For years, Bulgarian, Serbian and Slovenian hauliers have represented a high ratio of route ticket buyers.
The number of carriers using the fine alert and low balance warning services offered by the National Toll Payment Services Plc. free of charge is on the rise. These two functions largely contribute to the correct use of on-board units and enable road users to avoid successive fines. In view of the modification of the rules of the imposition of fines for unauthorized road use as of 12 November 2017, their importance is expected to increase.
As of 1 April 2018, Slovenia will introduce a modern electronic tolling system for vehicles with the maximum permissible weight over 3.5 tonnes (heavy vehicles).
