EU Clampdown: Drivers Beware

Croatian motorists who commit traffic offences in Hungary, Austria or Bulgaria, will have their fines sent to their home address in Croatia thanks to a new agreement that the four countries have signed.

Motorists from the countries involved in the agreement will also have to take special care on Croatian roads next summer. When Croatia enters the EU on 1 July 2013, the agreement will take effect, making it possible for traffic offences, such as running a red light or making an illegal U-turn, more easily punished, said the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

Similar agreements are already in place with some nations in the EU, such as Belgium’s caught speeding on French roads can be certain their ticket will arrive in the post in Belgium.

The agreement is part of a directive from the European Union who say that escaping traffic fines abroad will soon become impossible by November 2013.
