Distance Based Road User Charging for Heavy Vehicles – Experiences from Sweden

This paper looks at the case of introducing a distance based tax for heavy vehicles in Sweden. It describes the political process so far and the parallel system development. The discussion concludes that it is necessary to decouple the issue of tax increase from the question of how the tax could be collected. It is also necessary to further specify the system and the business model in order to be able to answer questions about the cost effectiveness of the system, which are necessary as a basis for a parliamentary decision.
