The road toll system in the Czech Republic: Myto CZ
In Czech Republic, the ETC works through specific OBUs provided by Viatoll. These OBUs are detected by antennas when passing under the gantries located on the lanes, vehicles traveling at normal speed.All heavy goods vehicles and buses of over 3.5 tons using the 1430 km long Czech national road network are subject to the payment of this road toll.
On 1 December 2019, a new electronic toll system was implemented with new OBUs. Since that date, you must be registered on the new system and have a new generation OBU to be authorized to circulate on the toll network.
eurotoll supports you in this transition by managing all registration formalities for you and providing you with a suitable OBU.
Rates are calculated based on the following factors:
- The type of the road used (Motorway, national roads, primary roads)
- The time of passing
- The type of the vehicle (heavy goods, bus)
- The number of axles
You can calculate here your road toll
Control and penalties
Video control of the presence of the OBU in the vehicle and of the coherence with the registration plate of the vehicle where it is installed. The control is performed by the road toll authority being part of national administration. Anyone not complying with the regulation shall pay a penalty and their vehicle may be stopped.
