Traffic violation fines

In Palermo, as well as in other European cities, adherence of traffic rules is strictly monitored, and punishments are rigorously enforced. Follow the speed limits and traffic rules, do not drink at the wheel, and most likely, a meeting with the road patrol service staff will be a threatening one. There is also a chance to get fined in everyday life. We have collected the most common situations you should beware of:


Be attentive to warning signs and plaques you meet in Palermo. All of them are accompanied by pictograms and arranged in such way to understand the rules of conduct even without knowing a foreign language. Anything may lead to a fine, speeding, a spontaneous lunch in the wrong place, or accidentally dropping litter. And do not forget a serious violation may lead you to a trial in court.

Crossing international borders in a rented car

In order to not find yourself in a situation where you accidentally end up in a place you are not allowed to go, visit the Border Crossing section in the rental terms.

We had a great time on the roads of Germany. We tested the famous avtobahns. For this purpose we rented quite prestigious cars. Moreover, we paid for the rental a very low price due to this resource. There were no problems at all.
