58? today i heard of 55,1% and it was raise from last week
however, the rest is not against, but there are about 38% (if i remember well) agtainst and the rest is undecided yet.

my Slovenian friends told me that free Schengen zone was the only good thing they have got with EU

No, there are not.

*even with Schengen police can stop you in the border area for some random checks, but not all the cars are stopped like before.

When were you there last time? Since December 12th 2008 Switzerland has joined Schengen and abolished permanent border checks.

As I said before, you might have been choosed for a random check. I have been stopped once at CZ/SK border eventhough they are in Schengen.

Strange ... Wikipedia states otherwise ... Although what they state about border controls between the UK (Ulster) & Republic of Ireland seems to be untrue ...

There are no border controls at the Swiss border. They do not stop every single vehicle, and check passports and cars. However, they do frequently check if you have a vignette, plus they also frequently pick out suspicious vehicles, so it looks a lot like regular border controls, but it isn't. Trucks still have to go through customs, though transit freight is not thoroughly checked as far as I know.

Now what is that, my father got charged 20 e again, when any fool here says, Serbia Slovenia costs 16 € he is retarted, cause my father paid 15 e at the first checkpoint and at the last he asked several times how much money and the guy said 5 €, it even displayed on the display but I was too slow to grab out my camera, now can someone please explain it to me? The croatian motorways are not very good anyway, the asphalt is very hard and the motorways are wavy as a motorcoaster and very loud, after we entered Slvenia we felt and heart nothing, can anyone explain me the high tax.

Yes, Switzerland is in the Schengen Area, which means no passport control (at least in theory), but it's not in the EU, which means control of goods (if you have anything to declare). Just like Liechtenstein, Norway and Iceland.

I believe he is complaining about Slovenian vignette. I really don't know how much SLO vignette costs now, but two years ago, when I crossed SLO, it was like they left me the unique chance to feel the moon's surface.

No, he's talking about Croatia. But what "Moon's surface" in Slovenia are you talking about?

Radi is talking about the total toll on Croatian A3, from serbian border to slovenian border. As I remember from last summer the toll was 15 euro till Zagreb and then another euro till the slovenian border.
Slovenian 10 days vignette was 15 euro.

I drove there in 2009 and paid by credit card. I'm sure the tolls were just € 0.60 or something similar. Definitely not € 5.

In 2008 I was at Rupa toll booth on A7 and they asked 5kn or 1 euro coin (toll is fix and not distance-based here). In the latter case, they gave 2 kn as charge but they didn't accepted eurocents but only 1 euro coins.

In real life, electronic toll collection was first introduced in Bergen, Norway in 1986, and well into the 21th century many countries still struggle to implement it.
