To better utilise the available infrastructure of motorways and express ways and to improve traffic distribution, a road pricing system has been set up. In 1997 an annual fee for motor vehicles to use motorways and express ways was introduced. This fee is paid via the purchase of a sticker (vignette) which has to be stuck onto the windscreen. The price of the vignette until the end of 2002 is € 73 (passenger vehicles) and € 727 (HGV up to 12 tonne) per year. The introduction of a toll depending on mileage for motor vehicles exceeding 3.5 tonne is being discussed. The rates are updated annually on the  ASFINAG website.
