The Commission presented a package of measures called “Greening Transport” on July 8 2008. At the heart of the package is a new proposal for a directive on the charging of heavy goods vehicles (hereafter referred to as “Eurovignette-Directive”), which defines the framework for Member States wanting to include the external costs of heavy goods traffic in tolls. External costs are all costs that must be borne at present by the rest of society rather than the user.
