Road pricing leads to lower CO2 and nitrogen emissions and traffic jams are shorter. People also drive fewer kilometers because they are less likely to use the car. This is evident from interim results of an investigation commissioned by the Ministry of Finance.

Various scenarios have been worked out in the study. Under the extreme scenario, the measure could save 24 percent of both CO2 and nitrogen. The ‘lost hours’ due to traffic jams would also be reduced by up to 68 percent. In addition, people would leave the car more often and thus make up to 15 percent fewer kilometers.

No decision will be taken on the measure during this cabinet term. In any case, its implementation will take at least another 9 to 10 years, State Secretary Vijlbrief writes to the Lower House.

Working from home

The consequences of the corona crisis have not been included in the study. According to Minister Cora van Nieuwenhuizen (Infrastructure), there is now less traffic because more people work from home. She calls on employers to be more flexible with working hours so that there are fewer traffic jams during rush hour.

The minister, who has always been opposed to road pricing, also wants electric drivers to pay if road pricing is introduced. “Otherwise it is not fair.” According to her, the report does offer ‘building blocks’ for the coming cabinet formation.
