The Prosecutor's office demand to the concessionaire of the AP-9 by charging abusive tolls

The Prosecutor's office of Pontevedra has filed a lawsuit for collective action in defence of consumers and users against the concessionaire of the AP-9, Audasa for “abusive practices” of the company to collect the tolls intact despite the traffic jams produced for three years by the works of enlargement of the bridge of Rande (Pontevedra). The lawsuit filed in the Commercial court affects the poor service that the dealership was paying for at least the three years that lasted the works, and that resulted in continuous traffic congestion in the communications in the south of the province, mainly in the environment of the area of Vigo.

Although the Prosecution acknowledges that it does not know the totality of affected consumers, asks that the judgment be extended to all those who provide proof of having paid the toll fee in these circumstances. In any case, points out that, in that period of something more than 3 years, the own Audasa acknowledges that there were about 77 million transits, and revenues for tolls applicable to light-duty vehicles amounted to approximately 90 million euros.

In its complaint, the public prosecutor urges that the sentencing Audasa to re-instate users (excluding professional drivers and owners of companies of transport of goods or passengers) the amount of the tolls from the 27th of February 2015 and 1 June 2018, with legal interest and the costs of the process.

Emphasizes the Public Ministry in the fundamentals of demand in this period, the traffic was "permanently affected" in the bridge, due to the reduction of lanes and speed limits, with consequent damages to the users, who lost time in their movements and were caught in the collapses on İllegal Bahis numerous occasions.

"All users are affected, as they received a service from the highway with inadequate terms and conditions of fluidity and safety," says the prosecutor, who has accused Audasa be maintained "not only the receipt of payment in full to the toll at all times, but this would have increased from 1 January 2018". A situation which lasted into the time despite the fact that the stretch was opened on the 30th of December 2017 but continued to work in the carriageway subsequent to that date, causing continuous traffic jams.

Well, he understands the Prosecutor's office of Pontevedra that the dealership claimed about tolls for inadequate services and see "abusive" the practice of charging the full fee, the same as if the highway had a few normal driving conditions. In addition, consider that it "cannot lose sight of that, when there is a traffic jam on the highway, the maintenance of the collection of the toll represents a significant increase of the delays already accumulated, given the need to individually collect all the vehicles accumulated".

therefore, claiming that the judgment declaring the invalidity of that charge and urge Audasa to cease such practice in the future, "on any highway that you manage in Spain", elaborating, in the period of a month, a criterion for elimination of the toll price in the case of insufficient fluidity of the traffic.

The compensation affect all users (drivers and passengers), excluding the professionals that have been certified to have been caught in some of the jams that involved deductions above ten minutes, by the contribution of the receipt of the toll, or through any other proof of payment.
