    Hi Hiroshi,
    We need an NCS card to apply, correct?

    - ETC車載器セットアップ証明書の写し Copy of ETC in-car unit setup certificate
    - ETCカード写し           Copy of ETC card
    - 充電カード写し           Copy of charging card
    - 道路事業者が登録者の高速道路利用情報をセンターに提供することについての同意書 Agreement

    Hello, card users,

    Just a quick reminder applications opened up this week for the subsidy. Interesting timing with the holidays around this season. There were a few other forms besides the ones Hiroshi mentioned.

    My company owns the car and the charging card is also under my company name so I might need to wait for a while.

    I was on vacation in Japan this past week. Gosh your highway tolls are insanely expensive :p
    And it seems nobody cares about the speed limit. I frequently see people driving 130 even though the sign says 80. Is this normal?

    Yes, highway fees are very expensive. I guess it's all relative since roads need to be paid for somehow.

    I cannot say no one cares about speed limits, but I can say some do not.

    Hi, Cynix, re speed limit, it depends on the road. At Shuto Expressway the limit is 60 but average 80. In Shin Tomei Expwy, the limit is 100 and average 120. In Ise-Wangan Expwy, the limit is 100 but average 130. Some people goes like 150 or 200 :)
