^ Why? I don't get it. Btw, the tennis courts above the new old Šentvid Gallery are actually still there, b/c the gallery goes under them anyway. Actually there are now basketball courts instead.

Belgium also wanted/wants to introduce the vignettes, but they have a lot of trouble with the EU and so on.

We introduced them in 3 or 4 months only. EU was just informed, nothing else.

Dutch media report long queues at the Austrian - Slovenian border because people need to buy a vignette.

The same can be said for Austria, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic then. Police say you can buy the vignette at the first service area, not necessarily at the border. They won't fine people until the first rest area (at least not these days).

In NL, you can buy Switzerland and Austria vignettes at ANWB shops, saving time during the journey. Is it possible to buy Slovenian vignettes outside Slovenia? If not, they should definately do that.

Yes, it is, in all neighboring countries except Hungary. But people just haven't heard of them yet, so it's a bit chaotic these days. It's funniest by the former toll booths (still in use for vehicles over 3.5 t). When foreigners approach them, they probably think "wtf, I payed 35 € and now I still have to pay at toll booths?!", and then some of them stop, don't know what to do, cause there's no one inside, and then I just blow the horn, like "get lost already".

In TV news in Slovakia was reportage from border crossing between Slovakia and Austria where you have to buy vignette. Problems is, that since Schengen there is placed sign which restricts stopping your vehicle. So you have two options: stop on place where it's forbidden or drive without vignette to the first resting place. First option could cost you EUR 66, the second option from EUR 333 to EUR 8,460 so majority of people rather stop there. But, I think it's possible to buy Slovak vignette in Austria as well.

BTW, is it necessary to have a vignette when driving on short section Redics - Lendava - Mursko Središće or in other words from Hungary to Croatia via Slovenia?

Shame! Maybe that will change in time. You can buy in Hungary Austrian, Slovakian and Czech stickers at filling stations and autoclub offices, so it can't be too problematic to sell the SLO ones too.

^ I think it will be possible eventually. Btw, you can't buy a Hungarian vignette in Slovenia, at least not in Ljubljana.

8,460 EUR for driving without vignette?! You don't need a vignette for Rédics - Mursko Središće road, but when the motorway is built later this year, you'll need it. Of course you can avoid it through the town of Lendava.

EUR 8,460 is of course for trucks, cars under 3,5 t would pay "only" EUR 333.

Well, it's a pity. Buying vignette for such a short section... I think toll boots would be much better in this case.

That would of course give other jams, but not as big as these.

Why couldn't you just go through Lendava?

Btw, that Austrian corridor vignette; I'd never buy it. By the time I stop, buy it and go on, I'm already out of Austria and driving for free.
