Police to increase traffic checks

ON JUNE 6, in cooperation with Czech, Polish, Hungarian, Austrian and Slovenian police units, the Slovak police launched a traffic inspection operation to check the speed, seat belt use and alcohol consumption of drivers. The operation is expected to last through the week.

Drivers will likely be monitored at check points on international road routes and in border areas. Those wanting to avoid hefty fines should be extra careful, warn the Slovak police.
