If you have ever ridden your motorcycle (or car) in Switzerland, you'll know what I'm talking about. When you take the motorway in the country of cheese, chocolate and bankers, you'll need to pay an annual tax, even if you're only on the motorway system for 10 minutes. You can get the tax sticker at the border, motorway offices, post offices or garages. The CHF40 (US$43) sticker needs to be displayed on your car windshield, though motorcycle are allowed to put elsewhere on their bike.

But riding on the motorway without the sticker is going to get tricky, or expensive. Starting today, the fine for being caught without the tax sticker is doubling, from CHF100 (US$109) to CHF200 (US$219). And since the cops who patrol the roads are always on the lookout for citizens to fine, chances are you'll be caught. So better pay the annual tax, which is not proportional, so if you need to take to the excellent road system on 30 December, you'll pay the same as someone who went on the 1st of January.
