Amount of fines for traffic violation

In Bilbao, 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:


All this time, we've been speaking how to make the most of your trip budget. Now let's talk about how to avoid unexpected expenditures, for example, fines. Most of them can be avoided by following generally adopted rules of conduct, law-abiding behaviour, sticking to street cleanliness, and public order. However, be attentive to various warning signs on the streets and buildings, therefore, avoiding having lunch in the wrong place or accidentally entering a restricted area.

Speed limitations

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:

I've tested a lot of sites, and I can say that the full search results are displayed only by this Internet resource. The sample of others is much smaller. This is a critical remark, as often there may be the most comfortable offers among these missed offers. I recommend it.

We went on vacation to the Balkans. We rederved cars in different countries so that there was a new car in each country. We drove each car for no more than 2 days. It was this search engine that helped a lot to find cars. It's not difficult at all. We recommend this resource)).
