None, windscreen is free of stickers and other litter.

Luckily don't need any vignettes or tax discs or whatever rubbish on your window in Holland.

The law in Bulgaria says you can't have more than 1 vignette on the windscreen. How is in other European countries?

So if you're from Switzerland you have to get your valid and paid-for Swiss sticker off the windshield? That sounds ridiculous.

Even more ridiculous if from Switzerland you drive to Bulgaria. Then you should remove valid stickers from Switzerland, Austria, Hungary and Romania...

We stopped using stickers in Romania. Now we have electronic vignette.

Anyway, we have an insurance sticker in Romania (you get one when you make the mandatory insurance and it's written the expiry date of the insurance on it), but very few people actually stick it in the windscreen. One of my parents cars have one of this on the windscreen (but it's expired for about 2 years) and the other car doesn't have it at all.

PS: this sticker is so well known that I couldn't find a picture of it on the internet.

Italian insurance sticker must be visibile from outside. Majority of people stick it to the windscreen, but some others stick it to one of the rear windows.

It might be the same with the Romanian insurance sticker, but do you think somebody cares? Many people don't stick it to be visible and the policemens are not complaining...

Interesting... nobody cares in Italy, though, not even policemen, but I've never seen a car without... maybe because car dealers already stick the transparent pocket for the insurance receipt in the cars they sell. It's like "everybody uses Windows because already installed in their computers"

Well, in italy you have that "pocket" where you keep the insurance receipt, so you can easly change the receipt with the new one when it's needed. In Romania we have an actual sticker (round shape, larger than any vignette) so every X months when you renew your insurance you have to take off the old sticker and attach the new one, which is annoying.

I saw this sticker, here in my town lives a romanian that has it on his car. The size is more or less the double of a normal vignette

This is not true. The only thing the law says is that vignettes that have expired must be removed from windscreen. So, If you speak about Bulgarian vignettes, of course this means only one will remain on the windscreen, because I don't think anybody would buy two vignettes valid for the same time But if you have valid vignettes from other countries, this doesn't mean they can't remain on it.

Actually it happens often. Many people don't buy a new vignette when the old one is already expired, but a day or two earlier, so they have two valid vignettes for a short time.

If the new vignette is already valid before the old one has expired, they can remove the old one.
If the new one is still not valid, they should not stick it to the windscreen, because it is illegal, they shall keep it and stick it when it's period of validity starts.

I was under the impression from a friend that the Bulgarian police paid no attention to such things in practice?

Usually they don't. But sometimes they do. A relative of mine got a fine for expired vignette sticker on the windscreen few months ago, so it sometimes happen. And he had only one expired vignette on it. They surely will pay attention if your windscreen looks like a Christmas-tree with several multicolored stickers, obstructing the visibility. Moreover, there are also stickers for annual technical inspection and mandatory insurance. And some people don't remove older stickers of these types neither. Which is quite suspicious - all Garages licensed to do annual technical inspection remove older sticker before applying the new one. If you have more than one - it should mean that either the sticker is false, or your car never got to the garage, and in both cases obtained the sticker without passing technical examination.

I've spotted this car from Romania today in Milan. It has 10 stickers on the windscreen. From where the lower sticker on the left?

That's the old Romanian vignette. Now it's electronic.
