KWess: Why the weird focus on the Czechs? I live on the French border and sometimes go via Germany, though the part of France I live in particulary doesn't have tolls. Then there's the Dutch...I can't remember paying a toll there, and the Belgians, I can't remember paying a toll there, and the Luxembourgois...there's a bunch of countries that border Germany...is it only the Czechs that are pissed-off by this? More likely the author saw an article from some Czech source on the web and just cranked out some column inches as click-bait.
TheWhoppah: 1. Gasoline costs about $8 per gallon in Germany.2. Highway driving burns 2+ gallons per hour.3. A route that is one hour shorter saves you $16 in addition to saving the hour...4. Therefore, the tolls would have to be really REALLY high before it makes sense for the cheapskates to go the long way around.
