    If you use the Motorways in Switzaland, you will need a Vignette, which if I remember right lasts for a year

          In France 2 new laws has been added, they are, there must be a Hi-vis vest for every occupant traveling in the car and these must be carried inside the car and not in the boot, everyone must wear them if the car is incapacitated in any way, then everyone has to get out of the car and find a place safely away from it.
          Plus, if you are one of the first to come across an accident you must by law stop and assist until the authorities arrive.

                          i went from France to Germany then to Switzerland and back to France last year, when i got to the swish border there was no border control and i had to get a vignette from a post office in zug where we stayed, and you have to display it on your front window, still go last years on mine come to think of it, watch your speed in Switzerland as the cops are supposedly really strict on speeding. i would say Zürich and zug are really nice places to visit while your there if you get the chance

                              not heard of that one, i didn't get court anyway, 140 on the autobahn in Germany and they charge a bomb for using there **** roads, they need to use some of there toll money to repair the pot holes
