Speed limit lower, fines higher under proposed law

The Transport Ministry is preparing to submit a new road act to cabinet that is tougher on drivers breaking speed limits, the Pravde daily wrote on August 16.

Under the proposed law, speeding fines would be set at up to Sk30,000. The draft also limits speed in municipalities to 50 kilometres per hour and increases it to 130 kilometres per hour for safe highway sections.
