A small landlocked country in central Europe, Lichtenstein is a mere 25km long and around 10km wide with much of its land forming part of the Alps mountain range so whilst there are very few roads to travel along, if you are driving in Liechtenstein, whether approaching from Austria to the east or Switzerland to the west, there are a few things you need to know. Generally speaking, driving in Liechtenstein is little different to its neighbours and other than some signage, you'll barely notice the difference. Do keep an eye on your speed however as speed traps are frequent and fines are high. Switzerland's E43 runs along the western border and offers a few crossing points into Liechtenstein's capital Vaduz. There are no toll roads in Liechtenstein, however when you exit to Austria or Switzerland you'll be venturing back onto toll roads and may require a vignette.
