The money you are paid here are equivalent with the services you are billed for.

Many years ago, before moving here I was at the border asking for 1 day vignette. The lady said that I have only one option. Vignette for 1 year...Me: but I will be here for couple of hours.. she said:

if you don’t like it - go back!

And you likely paid less for one year than for a single journey to the Côte d’azur

Edited to add, ‘or a single journey through the Mt. Blanc tunnel’.

In time of pandemic,
when people work from home and any sport activity is welcome,
tennis is forbidden to be played 12:00 - 13:00 on our communal tennis court.
