In a new city, you are going to get many impressions, do not make acquaintance with the local road patrol service one of these impressions and do not take time and money away from your own rest. In order to avoid this, it is enough to comply with the speed limit:

In Rotterdam, as well as in other European cities, adherence of traffic rules is strictly monitored, and punishments are rigorously enforced.

There is also a chance to get fined in everyday life. We have collected the most common situations you should beware of:
It is important to remember two things. The first one is that you are visiting the city and its inhabitants, and on a visit, you should stick to the house rules. Therefore, even if a requirement seems irrational to you, stick to it. Therefore, you will save time and money and keep your reputation. The second one is that not all violations are resolved by fines. Some offences are considered so serious that their outcome is determined by the court. Getting into a confrontation in a foreign city during your own vacation is not a good idea.
