Where to place the Auto Vignette on your windscreen – yes, seriously!
It must also be “stuck” to the windscreen (not merely propped against it). Failure to adhere and to place in the correct location on your screen could result in a CHF 200 fine. The Autovignette itself costs CHF 40 and the 2013 version is available now to purchase. Your old 2012 one remains valid until 31st January 2013.
