The position of the minister and the police on the potential increase in fines
However, I fine motorists again – for example, for speeding, disrespecting traffic signs or other offenses in road traffic.
“Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic at the present time it is not preparing a change in the law related to increasing penalties for misdemeanors. In general, it can be stated that the amount of fines does not depend on the need to consolidate the budget, but primarily on the analysis of the traffic and safety situation, possibly inflation, etc.,” the communication department of the ministry stated for Topspeed.sk.
The police also expressed themselves in the same spirit. “Traffic Police Department of the Presidium of the Police Force is currently not preparing an amendment to the law related to increasing penalties for misdemeanors,” said Denisa Bárdyová, spokeswoman for the police presidium.
