Optional electronic autobahn vignette [may come 2022]

The federal council, on request of both chambers, presented a proposed law change which would allow an optional electronic autobahn vignette.

Important changes/non-changes:

- Similar as in Austria
- The colorful sticker will still be sold.
- Cost is still CHF 40
- Electronic vignette is bound to license plate --> Discount for shared plates.
- Law change comes in force 2022 earliest
- Change must be approved by both chambers, not vetoed by voters.

(As always with admin.ch you can change the language on the top right hand corner. No English version available.)

I like this, as I have four sets of shared plates!

Not so certain. Cameras will be installed and the government will know where your plates have been.

If they wanted to do that they already would. There's currently no systematic enforcement of the Vignette, so ANPR cameras would be needed if they wanted to do that anyway, reading the number plate and searching for the vignette in the windscreen, as would still be needed even in the new system if they continue allowing the stick-on vignette.

In short, no real change to Big Brother capabilities as a result of this small change. But yes, better for this of us with multiple vehicles on shared plates.

Re: Optional electronic autobahn vignette [may come 2022]

I don't get the logic of a discount on shared plates? Explain that one to me please..

I get it that all plates don't need to pay 40chf each.. But it should still be total 40chf no? One vehicle is still always (allowed) on the highway.

Currently you need a vignette per vehicle, properly affixed, not transferable. The electronic one will be a single purchase per plate.

Clear?

They do anyway. There are many cameras that follow you on the highways.

Sounds like a great deal for people who have multiple vehicles and only one plate. Seems fair too, why should you have to pay for multiple vignettes when you can only drive one car at a time anyway?
