2013 Vignette needed on all motorways

2013 Vignette needed on all motorways

Motorists travelling in Austria are warned that if they use the motorways they need to make sure they have a valid vignette – which this year is Rasberry coloured.

Although the vignette is required at all times the vehicles travelling on the motorway – anybody who had a 2012 sticker would actually have been able to travel throughout January using the old sticker. But from today – Friday – these are now invalid.

Anybody caught travelling without a valid vignette will end up being fined.

Motoring organisations warned motorists that the windscreen needs to be clean, dry and fat-free. It should also only be put on a temperature of around five degrees centigrade – if it's colder motorists are advised to drive into a garage. Likewise when removing the vignette. But it is not illegal to have more than one vignette on display. Motorists are also warned that they need to keep the backing tape from the vignette to act as proof of purchase.
