SPANISH lorry drivers have coughed up €4.78 million to the UK government since new regulations came into play last April.
In total, foreign drivers have paid a massive €60 million to the UK Treasury since a levy was introduced last year.
The levy means that all lorries registered outside the UK and weighing more than 12 tonnes must pay up to €15 a day or €1,500 per year to drive on British roads.
Foreign lorry drivers from 90 different countries have paid 1.8 million in road tolls so far.
Polish operators have spent the most, contributing 26% of the levy.
Operators in Romania have accounted for almost 12%, and Spanish drivers have paid for 8% of all foreign levies.
Truckers from overseas who ignore the levy face a €450 on-the-spot fine.
