Since July 2011, the old paymentsystem using vignettes has been replaced with an electronic paymentsystem. The payment now takes place via Onboard Units (OBU) which will registre how much to be paid. More than 300,000 vehicles have already registred and Kapsch Trafficcom who is responsible for implementing the system expects to distribute around 25,000 OBU’s a day
The system covers more than 1,500 kilomtre of the Polish road network and is so far a success regarding the registration of vehicles who will be using the OBU. However, Kapsch recieved a fine since the system was delayed three days due to technical problems.
