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.

Official information: https://www.efd.admin.ch/efd/de/home...-id-76065.html
(As always with admin.ch you can change the language on the top right hand corner. No English version available.)

Edit: 17 December 2019 The propossed change has passed the council of states with 39 Yes : 2 No

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?

E-vignettes for 2022

The Swiss authorities have approved a digital vignette which will be linked to your plates and available from 2022. French / German

The traditional adhesive version will keep on being available until the day when 90% of people have switched to the e-version, but visitors will have to register online as traditional outlets abroad will stop selling the stickers.

Re: E-vignettes for 2022

So, if you buy a new car and transfer your plates across, you don't have to buy a second vignette ....

Unless you buy privately you should always get a vignette on the new car anyway...

Re: E-vignettes for 2022

sharing a plate between 2 cars means only one vignette then?

Yes. At least that was the proposal.

Following the German trick: If you buy a second hand car, the vignette which is already on it is no longer valid. Had that problem with this city-vignette thing as the car had it but on the wrong number.

Yes, I like that question

So if the police wants to check, they have to radio-in every license-number = they will know exactly who was where when even if it turns out the vignette was payed. I'm waiting for the "Datenschutzbeauftragte" to step up. Because TIS and such stuff is highly disliked here.

Re: E-vignettes for 2022

PS: It is just the council of states which has apporved the change. Still needs the vote of the national council and no veto from the people during the 100 day cool off period.
The title of the other thread http://www.englishforum.ch/swiss-pol...me-2022-a.html is still correct

Most likely they will just use cameras and computers as in other countries.

And how do they work? Check - delete (if ok) - check - delete .... ?

Not sure I like that better. How will I know if it's a camera I have to slow down about then?
