Ultimately, the changes entered into force on December 1, 2021, when the barriers at the gates of the A2 (Konin-Stryków) and A4 (Wrocław-Sośnica) motorways were lifted.

Currently, drivers can pay for travel with toll sections in several ways: using the e-TOLL mobile applications (option for entrepreneurs and mainly trucks) and e-TOLL PL TICKET, or by purchasing a “physical” ticket at stationary points of sale. Drivers especially complain about the first and last ways.

The e-TOLL application, due to the fact that it is aimed at entrepreneurs, requires complicated registration. Moreover, it is based on geolocation technology. Drivers report that the program regularly loses contact with the satellite. In the case of “physical” tickets, motorists complain that there are too few points of sale.
