More traffic fines will chase down drivers across borders

While motorists parking illegally with a foreign licence plate in Bulgaria, Croatia, Austria and Hungary will mostly remain unpunished, residents of these four countries will have to pay more attention to the speedometer and other traffic offences while abroad from January 2013.

The interior ministers of the four countries have signed an agreement for more effective cross-border cooperation and as a result all traffic violations carrying a higher penalty than 50 euro will be enforceable regardless of the country of residence.
