1. What make/model "car" is it?

2. Does it have back seats?

There are tens if not hundreds of thousands of commercial vehicles that fit in the car lane. The explanation is not only feasible, it is precisely what is happening

If your vehicle is on goods tax you are being charged the correct amount; if not you need to contact Eurolink to ask them why

its a car with back seats should be classed as a car. seen a quy in a small vw classed at 2.20 directly in front of me. when the barrier did not open he threw in the overcharge amount of 80c. he was scammed. every vehicle that goes in is classed at 2.20 and if they are gullible enough they are scammed.

Until you contact the operator you are stabbing in the dark as to why it's happening.

Opel Insignia. The main point is, it shouldn’t be happening, it doesn’t happen on other motor ways (M50, M1 etc.).

The onus should not be on the driver of the vehicle to spot this. As I am not the first person this has happened to, I can only imagine how many others have been overcharged.

Have you contacted them to advise them of the mistake.
At end of the day mistakes can happen and unless someone reports them they will continue to happen.

Get a tag and this problem will be eliminated.

The M3 was and is badly needed. A large amount of traffic comes and came into Dublin on it. Given there are sometimes traffic jams from the second toll onwards in the morning rush hour these days(especially if there's any accident on it or the M50). It was something that was required. It's just a shame it took so long to build.

M3 traffic figures are back to what was expected or beyond and TII expected to have no more than 180k left in traffic guarantee payments to make on it. They were handing over up to 2.6m a year at one point.
