It involves the application of measures, actions, and penalties to make sure that drivers and vehicle owners adhere to the tolling and traffic laws and regulations. Toll & law enforcement aims to ensure that the vehicle owners and drivers fulfil their toll obligations and improve road safety and prevent accidents.
ELECTRONIC TOLL IN SLOVAK REPUBLIC
On 1 January 2010 the Slovak Republic commissioned one of the most state-of-the-art electronic toll systems, which puts Slovakia among the leaders in electronic toll collection worldwide.
The Contract on the Provision of the Complex Service of Electronic Toll Collection.
As of 1 January 2014 the satellite technology of the toll collection covered almost 17,770 km of Specified Road Sections in the Slovak Republic. Following the expansion of the toll system to all the roads of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd category, SkyToll operated the longest network of lower-category toll roads in the European Union covered by the ETC system. As of 1 September 2020, based on a decision of the government, the third-category roads ceased to be a part of the network of specified road sections and the expressways became a part of the motorways.
An electronic toll collection system is a complicated information, communication and technological complex consisting of several information subsystems and a number of specific applications that ensure all operational processes of toll collection and enforcement.
SkyToll as the only contractor within the EU was able design, develop and commission a complete and fully operational electronic toll system in just 11 months.

ELECTRONIC VIGNETTE IN SLOVAK REPUBLIC
Our work is like a set of blocks – by joining various alternatives, inserting new ones and changing the arrangement of the existing ones, or their replacement for more modern ones, we always create an original and unique piece.
SkyToll’s electronic vignette solution charging for the use of motorways and expressways helps ensure that the main objectives of introducing a purely electronic form of vignettes – the more efficient collection of payments, ensuring the timely and complete payment of vignettes and increasing user comfort – are met.
In Slovakia, SkyToll succeeded in the tender by offering the most competitive price, enabling the government to reduce the cost of vignettes for passenger cars by up to 60%, while increasing the sales of vignettes by approximately 10%.

ELECTRONIC TOLL SYSTEM IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC
On December 1, 2019, the Czech Republic commissioned a new electronic toll system by the consortium of SkyToll and CzechToll. The world’s first generational replacement of a toll system took place under full operation of the original system with no transport restrictions. Thanks to the new satellite toll system, the government’s operating expenses for toll collection decreased to one third. Investments in the new toll system were thus returned to the government in the form of significant savings from operation and increased toll collection on newly charged 1st category roads with a total length of 867 km already in the first year of its operation.
In the Czech Republic, more than 2,400 kilometres of motorways and 1st category roads are currently subject to toll payment. The toll payment obligation applies to vehicles over 3.5 tonnes.
The consortium of Skytoll and CzechToll designed, built and commissioned a complete and fully operational electronic toll system within 14 months of signing the contract.
ELECTRONIC VIGNETTE, REPUBLIC OF SLOVENIA
On 1 December 2021, the Republic of Slovenia launched the system of electronic vignettes, which after 13 years replaced traditional motorway stickers.
The obligation to pay for an electronic vignette before using motorways and expressways in Slovenia applies to motor vehicles with a total weight of up to 3.5 tons, regardless of the maximum permissible weight of the trailer.
At present, there is a toll network of motorways and expressways with a total length of 618 kilometres. In the Republic of Slovenia, electronic vignettes are divided according to toll categories, in which electronic vignettes with different periods of validity are available.
In the initial phase SkyToll built a complete IT infrastructure, delivered and integrated a state-of-the-art software solution consisting of a central system and an electronic vignette sales system, providing comprehensive customer service processes, central electronic vignette data management processes and related support processes. The system also included the development of a payment enforcement system based on automatic optical recognition of vehicle license plate numbers, integration of data between various records/registers and quick and easy resolution of detected discrepancies in the collection or payment of toll road charges. The enforcement of toll road charges is secured through portable monitoring devices, hand-held monitoring devices, mobile vehicle monitoring devices and stationary monitoring devices.
SkyToll designed, built and commissioned a functional electronic vignette system in the Republic of Slovenia in just 188 days.
One of the benefits of the vignette system digitisation for the government includes new features of the enforcement system, the elimination of the possibility of using counterfeits and, of course, increased user comfort.
