At the council meeting on the 15th of October in Luxembourg, the Belgian EU Presidency got the necessary majority amongst the Transport Ministers in the European Union and thereby passed the so-called Eurovignette-directive. The directive determines the framework for collecting road use tax from lorries within the EU. 

The new suggestion will make it possible for the EU member states to collect higher taxes by including noise, pollution and congestion into kilometre-based taxes. The future Danish road pricing would have to be within the framework of the directive.
