Wrong bill for 67,000 toll users; BARRIER-FREE.

MORE than 67,000 people have been billed incorrectly since barrier-free tolling began on the M50 last year.

Also, thousands of people a day are not paying their toll within the required time, resulting in massive bills.

Despite these setbacks the operators said the system is improving.

Barrier-free tolling on the M50 began last August.

Figures obtained by RTE under the Freedom Of Information Act showed the system has also been unable to read about 160 cars every day.

And around 12,500 journeys a day are not being paid for within the required time resulting in 4,000 notices being issued each day.

However, BetEire Flow who operate the system say the number of complaints and problems are declining.
