I got an electronic toll tag for France above the rear view mirror. No more stopping for tolls!

Today I drove, one after the other, Col de l'Agnel, Col de l'Izoard and Col de Montgenevre. Amazing!

The American "E-ZPass" makes no sound at all. The way you know it's gone through (if that's the purpose of the sound) is that the electronic display at the toll booth changes to "paid" or "thank you" or whatever...depends where you are.

On the right of the mirror is the wire from the dash cam? Are you using it all the time (like russians), or just when recording specific road sections?

It's a beep. I checked a few videos on Youtube, and it depends on the toll plaza whether you can proceed at 30 km/h, or having to come to a stop. Especially offramp toll stations have no 30 km/h gates, the reader is right before the gate, so you have to come to a (near) full stop before you can drive through. Mainline toll plazas have dedicated 30 km/h lanes. Unfortunately most European tolling systems are still 15 years behind North America in that aspect.

Yep, that's for the dashcam. I only record when I want to, I don't do permanent loop recording. I use my dashcam to make timelapse videos, not to record strange driving behavior (which is often much more boring on video than in reality). We don't have those incredible scenes like in Russia.

I also asked the bank for a e-toll tag (Via-T) for my car, maybe in 15 days I'll have it on the windshield.

the bank?
here you come to petrol station and buy it. or at larger toll stations.
up to few months ago it was even possible to use it unregistered. now you must register online.

@Chris: I remember that promotive video for Telepeage few years ago where they promoted non-stopping lanes. so there are smaller exits with old stop-and-go system still left?
in HR we have problem because they have installed stop-and-go system which is horribly irritating. only few larger, new or reconstructed toll-plazas have 40 km/h passing lanes. in Italy all Telepass lanes are with 40 km/h limit, even at the smallest exits afaik.

In Italy speed limit is 30 on Telepass lanes.

For how long does the barrier open before you drive by?

I meant before Like, is the barrier already open when you come closer or does it convince you to slow down to proper speed and then open?

i saw some yt clips with passing the gate with 60 km/h or more. there is somewhere video from Spain where they break the barrier because of too high speed.
if you enter with higher speed, there is only possiblity that you are going too fast so antenna couldn't have enough time to read the reciever's signal. no other limitations.
