The train journey from Prague to České Budějovice will take only 100 minutes. After the tunnels on 4th railway corridor will be finished in 2023, the journey to South Bohemia will be faster by 25 minutes. Minister of transport Karel Havlíček stated it during an inspection day of transport constructions in South Bohemia.
After a quarter century, the era of classic paper toll vignettes ended on 31 January. From 1 February, drivers can use only electronic vignettes to drive on motorways.
Nearly two months after launching the sale, one million of e-vignettes was sold, mainly with a one year validity. Drivers mostly bought e-vignettes online at eDalnice.cz (846,344 pc), but some were also purchased at post offices (103,396 pc) and petrol stations EuroOil (87,067 pc). From 1 January, drivers can also use self-service kiosks to buy the e-vignette. This was the case of 3,281 pieces sold.
The government adopted an amendment to Civil Aviation Act, which is a part of a strategy on operation of unmanned aircraft in the Czech Republic, introducing recently implemented European rules for the use of drones. The act introduces additional control mechanisms or an option to apply for documents online and builds on previously launched registration of operators and training for remotely operating pilots according to the European rules.
The e-vignette information campaign promotes a new way to pay the toll and also points out some difficulties, which can occur during the purchase. Approximately 690 thousand of e-vignettes has already been sold since December last year. In most cases, people buy it via an online shop edanice.cz
Despite the simplicity of a new e-vignette system, mistakes can be made. It is therefore best to purchase the vignette in advance. Drivers can check the entered data afterwards and correct potential mistakes.
