Validity of motorway stickers
The stickers have to be purchased before using the toll roads, purchasing the sticker afterwards does not mean automatic retroactive entitlement of road usage. Using toll roads without sticker will result in penalty.
Toll sections may only be used with a valid road use authorisation, i.e. you need to purchase the e-vignette before you enter the toll section. If you purchase the e-vignette within the validity period, its validity always starts at the time of purchase (day / hour / minute).
Bona fide road users mistakenly entering the toll road network have up to 60 minutes from the entry to purchase road use authorisation.
