These days, an increasing number of people are buying vignettes for this year. Many of them are contacting the Ministry of Transport and the Czech Trade Inspection Authority with questions and complaints about the sale of overpriced vignettes.
Since 1 January 2024, drivers have had only a single document instead of the original two documents to their vehicles.

The electronic toll system in the Czech Republic will introduce a new component of toll charges from 1 March 2024, which will take into account the CO2 emissions of vehicles subject to the charge.

Emission limits for trucks, rail transport and road safety. These are the main topics for the EU this year. The European transport policy in 2024 will be fundamentally affected by the European Parliament elections in June and the subsequent appointment of the new European Commission. The EU institutions will therefore focus primarily on reaching agreement on the proposals that are already under discussion.
The Road and Motorway Directorate has started construction of the continuation of the D3 motorway from Nažidla to the state border with Austria. The 3.5km section will replace the current I/3 road and will largely follow its footprint.
