Unpaid tolls often wait this long as they are so fantastically inefficient in chasing debts. The toll company is using international debt collection companies. These companies ad a large fee to the actual tolls, regard this as a fine.

Your problem for not having paid the tolls. I don't know if debt collectors will be knocking at your door any time soon.

You were lucky. On arriving at the frontier this week I was informed that I had not paid road tolls in 2011 and later years of €300. I am certain I paid them on my credit card at the time but now I have no way of proving whether or not I paid the toll SEVEN years ago. Moral: Do not drive in Portugal.

"Moral: Do not drive in Portugal."

Actually the moral is to pay for services that you use in a timely manner.
