Maybe technically but I can't see them actually enforcing that in such situations

No, there isn't such rule even technically. Law says only expired stickers should be removed.

How about this?


All vignettes are weekly ones for 2011. The sum of their prices exceeds the price of an annual one by some 20%.

Here we have three annual ones (2005/2006/2007), and one weekly and two monthly (which sum also is almost equal to the anual):


So it seems there are drivers with a lot of Bulgarian vignettes who drive with older ones and not being fined.

(both pictures are googled)

I´ve got only 2 non-valid vignettes of Switzerland and Austria on my car.

My truck is a different story, though: german umweltsticker plus three electronical devices. OBU for Germany/Austria (this one is quite big) plus 2 smaller devices for France and Italy. I used to have a seperate device for Austria, but the system is capaple for the OBU since a couple of months now. I also ripped off the special (huge) environmental sticker you need to pass the mont-blanctunnel.

Were all of those current, or were the old ones hard to take off?

(My annual Philadelphia resident parking permit expires tomorrow, so this is on my mind. The little instruction sheet that comes with the new one says to remove the old one. I believe having more than one on display is actually illegal. And it comes off perfectly easily and cleanly. But you see so many people with half a dozen of them accumulated in their rear windows. Occasionally, you see them with different district numbers - the city is divided into parking districts and your permit is only good in the one you live in. I suppose they're people who've moved and are trying to preserve a right to park in multiple districts and they're hoping the parking enforcers don't look at the expiration dates....)

(Here http://media.philly.com/images/600*4...ermit06z-c.JPG is a Philadelphia resident permit. Two, in fact. As you can see, the district number is much more prominent than the expiration date, unless that serial number means something to the parking officers.)

Now, can someone explain those round things in the front windscreens of British cars? :-)

It's not my car! :P

To be honest, I'm perfectionist and I always have the sticker with registration number put directly to the down edge of windshield, about 7-8 cm far from the corner and vignettes carefully pasted where they should be :P

In France, we must have an insurance sticker.
Unlike in Italy, police care of it, it is forbidden to drive a car without insurance in France.


We also must have the vehicle inspection sticker for car over four year old.
Inspection are done every two year.

(In this picture, it means that the next inspection should be done in October 2009).

Also in Italy, my mum was fined for the lack of it.

About France insurance sticker…

I think if I drive my spanish car into france I don't have the obligation to have that sticker on my windscreen, correct?


Anyway. The spanish inspection sticker is the most stupid and useless thing on earth.

żWhy? Spanish police can know if you passed the inspection, if you paid the insurance and taxes with only knowing the licence plate.



Even, they don't need to stop a vehicle for check the papers because some police car have a licence plate recognition camera and automatically they check everything via internet.

A lot of people didn't put the sticker because is ugly (like my mom) and police rarely fine for that because they can check if the car passed the inspection.

Never heard of insurance stickers before. However, when driving in France (or anywhere abroad) I always have a "green card", signed and stamped by my insurance company.

The French have insurance discs on their windscreens, the Brits have tax discs, the Dutch have nothing and the Austrians drive around with a "pickerl", which is to show that their vehicles have made it through their annual mechanical tests. (MOT it's called in England)

In Finland we don't need anything like that. The insurance companies and TraFi (Transport Safety Agency) communicate with each other. Whenever needed, the police may use their computer to find out in a couple of seconds that the insurance, taxes and inspection are in order.

That Green card thing mentioned in the message above is a document that insurance companies issue only to those driving abroad.

How does this system work for rental cars??? (i.e. Avis, Hertz, Europcar, Sixt, etc.)

Do you have to specify to the rental car agency if you plan on using the rental car outside the country where it was leased?

Yes. This may affect the price. Not only must you tell that you're going abroad; you must also tell the names of all the countries you're going to. In return, the rental agency gives you a document which authorises you to operate that vehicle in these specific countries.

Failure to present such document to police, when asked, may have several consequences; up to the confiscation of the entire vehicle and its transportation to the rightful owner, costs paid by you.
