Motoring lobby withdraws tax protest

Motoring organisation ANWB has withdrawn its strong criticism of government plans to bring in a kilometre tax for all motorists.

The tax, which will be based on the number of kilometres driven, will replace the current road tax.
The ANWB’s u-turn follows ‘open and constructive’ talks with transport minister Camiel Eurlings, news agency ANP reports. The organisation is now convinced the kilometre tax will not lead to higher charges for motorists.
