Bulgarian traffic police began issuing fines to drivers with old stickers on their window shields, the Traffic Police Chief, Commissar, Aleksi Stratiev, informs Tuesday.

The measure includes outdated road vignettes, insurance and annual technical inspection stickers. The fine is BGN 20.

Until January 31, 2010, drivers, who have purchased current road vignettes, but failed to fill in the license plate number will not be sanctioned, according to an order sent to all Regional Interior Directorates. This, however, is in effect only for annual vignettes, not for the daily, weekly and monthly ones.

The police is also beginning mass checks of cars with tinted windows.

In 2010, 15 000 drivers were fined for not having road vignettes with 52% f the fines collected or BGN 40 M from the BGN 70 M in fines, according to traffic police data.

Vignette sales since the beginning of 2011 amount to BGN 64 M – BGN 2 M more compared to the same period of 2010.
