Re: How enforceable is non payment of a UK toll charge?

Here is an overview of the enforcement of "traffic fines" of various neighbouring contries of Switzerland:
https://www.fedpol.admin.ch/fedpol/e...enverkehr.html
But is a toll charge, even when elevated, a traffic fine (which would put it in criminal and administrative law) or is it a contractual obligation (which would put it in civil law) ?

If it is the later it can be persuaded just like any other unpaid bill. But with one important detail: A traffic fine can be issued against the holder of the vehicle, whereas as a claim from a contractual obligation must go to the offending party.
