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

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.
Not paying the charge in time results in what they call a fine (up to 108 at Dartford Crossing, TYVM), which in turn implies administrative law to me. However this is the UK, their approach may differ.
