Currently, the Road Traffic Law provides that confiscation of drivre's license applies if the driver speeds above 51 km/h. In such case a fine of EUR 240-320 and a prohibition on exercising the right to drive for three months shall be applied.
On the other hand, if the speed violated is higher than 60 km/h, the fine and the period of prohibition of exercising rights increase.
The planned proposals for amendments to the Road Traffic Law also include introducing a fine instead of a warning for speeding more than six kilometers per hour, as well as proposals for a new definition of electric scooters.
“In particular, the definition of electric scooters is supplemented by a power component and the requirement that the electric scooter be regarded as a two-wheeled vehicle is included,” added Novikova.
The Ministry has also submitted other intended requirements to be viewed by legislators.
