Truck toll.

Germany has a relatively new national toll on trucks. On 06 Nov 2013 it became known that interior minister Hans-Peter Friedrich (C.S.U.) had wanted to use data collected during the collection of that toll “to fight crime” but has supposedly been stopped from doing so.

Wikipedia said the toll was introduced in 2005 and is collected automatically by Toll Collect using G.S.M. and G.P.S. and on-board units on registered trucks or by toll tickets sold by off-ramp terminals.
