What’s that? Where does it apply? What is the penalty?
A speed limit is the maximum allowed speed, unless specified otherwise with a traffic sign.
The speed limit:
- on roads inside built-up areas (village, city) is 50km/h;
- on highways 90km/h. In the summer, the speed limit is 110km/h on some highways.
A driver who has exceeded the speed limit can be punished with a financial penalty, an arrest, suspension of the right to drive or vehicle confiscation. Financial penalties are between 40 - 1200 euros.
