BERLIN, GERMANY – NOVEMBER 03: Cars and traffic fill the A100 ring highway at dusk on November 3, 2014 in Berlin, Germany. Germany is heatedly debating the introduction of highway tolls (in German: Maut), which in the current form proposed by German Transport Minister Alexander Dobrindt would be levied solely on foreigners. Dobrindt’s office argues that this is not discrimination, which would be illegal under European Union law, since Germans already pay an annual car tax.
