No, they won't, it will be possible to rent it - you'll pay a deposit for the device and get it back on the other end of your transit route through CZ.

But good news is that the new government stated that they want to abolish those non-sense electronic coupons. But they have to make it fast.

Chris is right as for current status, of course

Yeah, the funny thing is, that the same guys that brought it up, now proclaim that they want to abolish it. I think, that in the end, we will be told that they could not manage to change the law, in between there will be signed contract between Kapsh and the Ministry of Transport... . Anyway this example just ilustrate that Ministry of Transport and its agenda (together with SFDI) is the biggest leakage of czech budget.

But anyway it is utermost nonsense to introduce this.

Currently you would buy this:


In the future you would probably rent something like this against deposit 500 CZK (20 EUR) and you would put on it time credit for the same price as the sticker:



I hope that the system will not be implemented as it would mean minus 12 MLD CZK for the road budget over five years. If the el. vignetts should be implemented with positive budget effect they would have to bring km based charging, with minimum price 1,5 CZK per KM. That is around 0,06 EUR per km.... What I think, that this whole story is headed for this variant anyway... it is just easier to make small steps for the agenda than one big leap due to weaker public discussion.


If anyone can come with a very good reason why to go for electronic variant of a sticker, do it.

I`m terrified ;(((
current system is IMO very good, sticker is far more comfortable than box, and paying for distance - tragedy; now my weekend in Prague is 250, if the price is 0.5 CZK/km the price is 370!
and I would be afraid that they controll my avarage speed and fine me

It is a non sense to have a small box for an electronic vignette. Why didn't they suggest a similar system like in Hungary? They are just virtual and they have cameras and special cars checking if you have the sticker.
The electronic box is useful only if there is a toll system like for the trucks.
I ave such an electronic box, but I sue it when I pay the toll in Italy and for now it cannot work in other countries. Hopefully the EU decided for a common interface for these boxes.

They decided in this way, because "they" are bribed, and they dont pursue public interest, but primarly private interests.

Sections 516 and 517 are 3+3 with shoulders, that's 3,5 + 2,5 = 6 km

Sections 518+519+520 and 511 are to be build as 3+3 with shoulders:
9,4 + 6,7 + 13,7 + 12,6 = 44,4 km

There happened caving last night during the construction of the "Blanka" tunnel for Prague's inner City ring (not the outer ring!!). One man with excaveter was captured by the soil, luckily he survived and was released this mornig after six hours. It is unclear what was the reason for caving and how will this affect the construction.

Thats how it looks from the surface. (c) www.novinky.cz




This is how it looks inside during normal construction. (c) www.tunelblanka.cz

Nice picture showing the whole situation. On the bottom side of the picture is the working pit at Prašný most.



The hole almost took the building of the Ministry of Culture.
