PARIS (Reuters) – France’s largest toll road operator Vinci <SGEF.PA> on Tuesday backtracked on its plan to impose a late charge on motorists who pass through toll booths occupied by “yellow vest” protesters for free.

The company had said on Monday it would send an invoice to motorists whose licence plates were captured on surveillance cameras by post.

But it reversed course amid public uproar, though it called for “civic sense” and urged motorists to pay the fees.
