So I was driving on the highway in The Czech Republic. I purchased a "highway tax" sticker and put it on with The others I used over the past years. I passed a van that looked offical but did not think about it. I was not speeding and I had my sticker! The VAN pulled in frount of me and there was a glowing sign in The back window stating "Follow Me". In 4 languages. So, I followed. My friend who I was with knows some Czech but we chose to do this stop in only English. ;).
"Did I do something wrong, sir?". I asked
He did not speak English very well, but we figured out that I should not have had all of the past stickers on.
"Oh! I did not know! I will take them off right now." I told him.
"okay, but 25 euro" he said.
"But I have the sticker."
"only one. "
Okay. So I tried 3 or 4 times to not get a "too many stickers on your windshield fine", but he would not let me go until I paid The fine. He even had a card scanner for those of us who do no carry Euros with us. :)
