People without a working kilometer tax meter in their cars once the system is introduced in 2012 face six months in jail or a fine of up to €18,500, the Telegraaf reports on Tuesday.

[efoods]People caught fiddling the meter can be jailed for up to four years or fined €74,000, the paper says, quoting the draft legislation.

The draft law says motorists themselves are responsible for the meters, deftects must be reported within eight hours and repairs carried out within three weeks.

The cabinet agreed on Friday to replace road tax with a kilometer charge, based on a gps system fitted in all vehicles.

The motoring organisation ANWB, which supports the kilometer tax in principle, says ‘alarm bells’ have been ringing about the size of the potential fines. ‘We are going to go through this draft legislation with a fine toothed comb,’ a spokesman told the paper.

Newspaper polls, including DutchNew’s own vote, all show most people are opposed to the introduction of the tax.
