Road Tax sticker - Quality Degraded...

Have you ever faced this issue?


The road tax sticker sticked on the windshield and refused to be off after one year... I really got pissed when need to tear this bit by bit. I spent 1/2 hours to peel the sticker out from the windshield, unfortunately could not peel off all those sticky sticker, i have no choice to leave some unpeel sticker on the windshield and stick the new one on top...

I'm still remember the first year when they introduced this sticker... the following year was so easy to peel off but now year over year... It's getting tougher and tougher to peel out the old road tax. Now i understand why some people just stick besides the old road tax. Difficult to take out...

I'm not sure how do you feel about the Road Tax sticker quality... but for me, I feel the quality has degraded year over year. Why? maybe the cost has gone up and our lovely Transportation Ministry is paying peanut to the manufacturer. As a result, the manufacturer has no choice but to cut cost and provide the 2nd or 3rd grade quality sticker instead... Is this the real situation?

Anyway, will see what would happen for the current new road tax... Am i having the same problem or worst next year? Let's monitor for another year :p

Anyway, do you face this issue?

The new road tax sucks real bad! My new car arrived on CNY and the road tax peeled off itself in 2 weeks! Blergh!
