The upper chamber of parliament vetoed the recently adopted roads act following an outcry over new rules for the towing of broken down vehicles on motorways that contractors said would effectively give the motorway company DARS a monopoly on this service.

The veto came with the explicit support of the government after both Infrastructure Minister Jernej Vrtovec and DARS director general Valentin Hajdinjak said that the controversial provision, proposed by the coalition, was not appropriate and a veto was the fastest way to correct the law.
