  2. Toll payment in Italy 2024

    The toll gates are marked as Alt Stazione. The payment system can vary from the motorway to the motorway, but usually, you pick up a ticket at the turnstile when you enter the motorway, and pay at the exit or the end of the toll section. On the A36 Pedemontana Lombarda motorway, there is a free flow system without toll gates. You can pay the toll via the mobile app, the Telepass on-board unit or additionally via the internet. You can calculate the toll amount for these sections at

    Payment in cash or by credit card

    You can pay for tolls in cash using euros or other currencies. Most payment cards are accepted as well. The fastest way is to pay by card at the automatic cashiers marked as Carte. If you are, for some reason, unable to finish the payment, an additional payment is also possible. The driver is issued a bill which must be paid within 15 days. You can find more information at

    Pre-paid Viacard

    Another alternative is to pay by prepaid card. At petrol stations, newsagents or some tourist offices, it is possible to purchase a Viacard with a value of €25, €50 or €75. The card is valid until the prepaid credit is used up.

    Automatic toll payment system Telepass

    Telepass is a system for electronic toll payment. Thanks to the wireless device, the sections of motorway travelled are recorded and subsequently billed. There is no need to stop when passing, just slow down to 30 km/h.

    Telepass in the UK

    You can order automatic tolls in the UK through Telepass. The activation cost is 15 euros (£12), and an additional monthly charge of 4 euros (£3) in the calendar month of use, up to a maximum cost of 36 euros (£30) per year, is applied.

  6. Fines for speeding in Italy 2024

    Italy has a very simple and clear system of fines. The speed limit is measured quite often, which is why the Italians themselves usually drive in a disciplined manner, at least on the motorway. Anti-radar devices are prohibited, but you can use the stationary radar alert system in navigation.

    Police officers can issue fines, but they cannot collect them because of the fight against corruption. An exception is foreign drivers, from whom they can collect a quarter of the fine. The rest must be paid at the post office or bank. If you disagree, you can go into administrative proceedings, but until then, the police are authorized to confiscate your vehicle.

    At night (10 pm-7 am), fines for more serious offences are automatically increased by 30%, and in the event of a drink-driving accident, they increase by 50%.

    Exceeding the speed limit in and outside the built up-areas

    • up to 10 km/h: €41
    • 11-40 km/h: €169 and 2 penalty points
    • 40-60 km/h: €532 and 10 penalty points and a ban on driving for 1-3 months
    • over 60 km/h: €829 and 10 penalty points and a ban on driving for 6-12 months

    I was driving from Lake Como to Lake Maggiore. I paid most tolls but there were 2 stations where the gate arm was up/open. It said there was no toll gate to pay. I did not understand and did not take a ticket. It said I would be fined if I did not pay within 15 days.

    How do I find out what I owe and I want to pay online. It was on December 12th so more than 15 days.
    Please show me where to find out what I owe.
