M50 toll advert, Belfast
M50 toll advert, Belfast
An advert, on a bus shelter on the Malone Road in Belfast, for the M50 toll road in Dublin. There are several toll roads on motorways in the Republic of Ireland but this is the only one has no toll booths; instead, similarly to the London Congestion Charge LinkExternal link , users of the road must pay online or by phone if they drive on the road (regular users can pre-pay).

What is odd is that this is an advert for a toll road that is in another country and jurisdiction. Reading online it appears that the road operators have begun tracing and contacting drivers in cars that are registered outside the Republic of Ireland and who have not paid the toll; unable to pursue these drivers directly, they appear to be passing their details onto debt collection agencies who are adding a huge fee onto what is a fairly nominal payment of E3.20 for one trip. However, reading further online (and I am no legal expert) it appears that there may be no legal requirement to pay any fine if you live outside Ireland - see LinkExternal link [accessed 04/2016].
