Club news: Touring calls for the Belgian government to reinvest all taxes from vehicle owners into mobility


Publication date: 23 February 2016


Touring Club Belgium (TCB) revealed that less than half of the €17 billion tax revenue from car owners in the Brussels Region is being re-invested into transport.

When looking at how the tax revenue is re-invested in transport, it was discovered that €5 billion went to funding public transport; meanwhile only €1.2 billion was invested in road infrastructure. According to the Club, while it is understandable that a portion of the vehicle taxes goes into public transportation such an imbalance is alarming.

In response to the findings, TCB is calling for a review of the scheme for vehicle tax investment and a re-investment of all vehicle tax revenues into road infrastructure and mobility as a whole. As part of its campaign the Club has launched a petition encouraging the authorities to invest more in infrastructure and to facilitate better traffic flow and increased safety.
