A statement released on Friday, 29 June from the Ministry of Economy and Employment announced that the toll exemptions will be extended for 3 more months. This was due to the usual end last Saturday, 30 June. The exemption applies to residents who live near the former SCUT motorways such as the Via do Infante (A22).
The benefit of the current exemptions is the first 10 trips in a month are free of charge and a discount of 15 percent on all subsequent journeys along the local motorway.
Recent data published by the Institute of Road Infrastructure (InIR) showed a significant drop of traffic on the A22 by around 57% compared to the first quarter of 2011 (Jan, Feb, Mar).

Whereas the situation for residents with transponders is still unclear of how many free journeys can be done as the government still has not made figures available.
The Comissão de Utentes da Via do Infante (CUVI) reported that in the first quarter of 2012, traffic accidents and serious injuries are "more than doubled and fatalities are higher on the EN125 and other secondary roads, than the same period last year".
What will happen during summer time, when traffic figures are more than double as they are now?
