The annual vignette is valid for 14 months from the beginning of December to the end of January of the following year. So, for example, if you need a road stamp for a trip in December, your best bet is to buy a stamp for next year. An additional motorway mark is mandatory for trailers and caravans.
On the   ch.ch website   you can find clear information about the Swiss vignette.

E-tolling on motorways is expected to be introduced from 2023. Probably, this electronic car brand can be bought through online stores. The e-vignette will be linked to the license plate of the vehicle.

Fee for vehicles weighing more than 3.5 tons

Vehicles over 3.5t gross vehicle weight are subject to a fixed heavy vehicle charge of EUR 2.96 per day (minimum charge is EUR 22.75). You pay for the use of any of the public roads at any time. Detailed information can be found at   evz.admin.ch  .

Speed ​​limit in Switzerland

  • In built-up area: 50 km/h
  • Outside of the settlements: 80 km / h
  • On the road for motor vehicles: 100 km/h
  • On the track: 120 km / h

Fines for the vignette

Drivers without a valid toll will pay a fine of 182 euros and are also required to purchase the toll immediately. In total, the trip without a vignette will cost 218 euros. Drivers with bad or repeated stamps will pay the same fine.

Where to stick a car vignette

Glue the entire surface of the stamp to either the bottom left corner, top left corner, or in the middle of the rear view mirror. Choose a location where it does not obstruct your view and where it is easy to see from the outside. For a motorcycle, place a mark in the lower left corner of the inside of the windshield. For a caravan, put it on the front window that looks like a car. See the back of the vignette for instructions.

The Swiss have perhaps the widest system of fines. The game also has a prison for at least one year! We strongly do not recommend exceeding the speed limit, the Swiss themselves are very decent drivers. Beware of other crimes such as throwing cigarette butts out of a vehicle, not using a turn signal, driving through a red light, all are punished very severely. We also meet the term daily fine (German: Tagessatze), which is calculated according to your income and standard of living, and you are actually required to pay a daily amount.

Winter tires are mandatory when winter conditions (snow, ice, ice) prevail. The minimum tread depth for winter tires is 4 mm.
The obligatory nature of snow chains in certain sections is regulated by the relevant road signs.

All vehicle passengers must wear seat belts.

Children under 12 years of age must be seated in a special child seat or on a cushion if their height is less than 150 cm.
Children over 150 cm and children over 12 years of age must wear a seat belt.

Children must be secured in a child seat according to their weight and age. The seat must carry the appropriate ECE safety label.

In principle, children can sit in the front passenger seat regardless of age. If your vehicle is equipped with airbags, rear-facing car seats can only be used if the front passenger airbag is deactivated.

The fine for transporting an unfastened child under the age of 12 is   1436 ₴  .

The Swiss Federal Road Traffic Act (SVG/LCR) contains harsher penalties for young (beginner) and professional drivers. They have zero tolerance for alcohol in the blood, and for experienced drivers the limit is 0.5 ‰.

  • 0.5 (0.1 for novice and professional drivers) – 0.79 ‰ – in the event of a first violation of the warning and a high fine as a result of income and standard of living, repeat offenders (up to 2 years) or drivers who violate other rules or cause accidents the certificate will be withdrawn for at least one month
  • more than 0.8 ‰ – deprivation of a driver’s license for at least three months, there is also a risk of a fine and up to three years in prison

Information about drinking and driving in Switzerland can be found at  tcs.ch.

Daytime Running Lights

Cars (cars, vans, trucks and buses) and motorcycles must have headlights during daylight hours. Mopeds, e-bikes, and vehicles registered before 1970 are exempt from this requirement.

Convoy driving rules

If the so-called rescue line/alley on the motorway is not created, the driver is fined 80 euros. The same fine is imposed on drivers who do not respect the zipper in the constriction on the track.
