Some useful information about tolls from the ETS2 teasers thread:

In real life when you hit them they fly off . Had that happen once or twice. [...] Spanish are like the French. And all lanes have the toll booms.
They don't have lanes without them [...]

The exception is the "La Roca" toll on the AP-7 north of Barcelona, that has two special lanes of fast autopass. They have no booms, wide lanes and max allowed speed 60 (even I know they work at 70 at least ). Suposedly they are not for trucks, but a few times I've seen a trailer taking those lanes. I don't know if there exist any other tool like that in Spain.
Portugal on the contrary, if I know it well, has no normal tolls but vignetes and are controlled by camera gates. So, they are in the XXI century while on Spain we still are on the XX.
