The price of the road vignettes paid by the Romanian car drivers will surge by up to 66 per cent and it will plunge for certain validity periods as far as vehicles transporting goods or passengers are concerned, according to a new draft law aimed at amending the legislation on road infrastructure charging, formulated by the Department for Infrastructure Projects and Foreign Investments (DPIIS), Mediafax reports. In comparison to an ordinance draft on this matter previously drawn up by the above-mentioned institution and to the regulations in force, the new bill stipulates the hike and decline of several charges, the removal of the 90-day validity period and a new interval of 10 days regarding cars and vehicles for freight transport weighing 3.5 tonnes or less. Thus, the Romanian drivers will have to pay 5, 10 and 32 euros (VAT included) for the vignettes valid for 7 days, 30 days and 12 months respectively. By comparison, for the same validity periods, the amounts paid at this moment stand at 3, 7 and 28 euros. As to the 10-day interval, the proposed amount is 6 euros. With respect to the vehicles for freight transport weighing up to 3.5 tonnes, the charges for 7 days and 12 months edge up from 6 to 7 euros, and from 96 to 100 euros respectively. On the other hand, the price of the vignettes valid for 30 days will drop from 16 euros down to 14 euros.
