In case the car buyer does not understand the information and has no agreement with the seller of the car, he/she may be subject to obligations related to the vehicle that the owner of the old car

To avoid damage, car buyers can work again with the car sellers to negotiate about this. For registry agencies, they shall be assigned to collect the road tolls to the State. They shall only have to strictly pay the charges of road tolls (if their vehicles are still owed tolls) and collect charges for the subsequent cycles before issuing registration certificate
