Traffic penalties increased in Slovenia

Although the number of road deaths in Slovenia decreased dramatically after stiffer fines for traffic violations and drink driving were introduced in 2008, the penalties were again raised as of 1 July 2011. Police have also seemed to become more vigilant in enforcing traffic laws in recent years, especially in smaller towns and wine regions. Drivers from other EU states should be aware both fines and points against their driver's license will be enforced across EU borders, while drivers from outside the EU will be forced to pay on the spot in cash. Please see the chart below for a complete overview of fines and penalty points.
