No, the congestion charge is only during rush our. Our toll ring is a charge simply for driving in and through city centers that remains constant through the whole day/year. There are currently proposals to put in place congestion charges in additional to the standard toll schemes though. I believe there are currently toll rings around 8 Norwegian cities.

It may be a bit off-topic, but I have experienced this last summer in Hungary. I was registering my car to e-vignette system and my licence plate ends with "SI" letters. The employee entered my licence plate with numbers "51" instead. I made a claim affraid that the police will stop me but he said that it did not matter - the security cameras could not distinguish 5 from S or I from 1. I am still surprised.

This one on E39 in Norway went out of commission in 2006 - but it's preserved as a National monument

I think Ireland has only tolls at some point of their motorways, so if you use them but bypass that point with normal roads, you won't pay.
By the way, in M50 (Dublin orbital), I think they changed the toll booth similar to that one our Basque friend showed to us and now they use electronic toll instead. Anyone can confirm this?

That's exactly why Germans introduced current font (so called FE-Schrift or Faelschungs(E)rschwerende Schrift / forgery-impeding typeface) on their license plates 20 years ago...

Really? It will be preserved like that? The rail things surrounding it is somewhat interesting, but the booths them self and all other stuff is less so.

Some examples of toll booths in the US. Lately there has been more of a push to have automatic toll collection (several recently opened toll roads in Texas, North Carolina, Florida, Maryland, and Colorado do not feature toll booths, they just take a photo of your license plate and send you a bill later) so toll booths are starting to become more of a thing of the past at least in the US.
