Motorists face higher toll with new proposed rates

PAY AS YOU GO:Lawmakers and the ministry failed to reach a consensus on any of the three proposals, with the toll fee set at NT$0.9 to NT$1.3 per kilometer

KMT Legislator Lin Ming-cheng (林明溱) suggested that the toll-free distance be set at 30km and the toll fee be set below NT$1 per kilometer.

A flustered Lin also slipped up when he said: “The ruling party will suffer a big loss in the next legislative election” if the ministry’s proposed rates are not changed.

The meeting ended without reaching a consensus.
