Corrections and hints are welcome.
Croatia mostly follows the European standard on fines, but be aware that Croatia is one of the few countries where you may end up in jail for speeding.
Unlike most Eastern European countries the limit on alcohol consumption is not zero.
|Important numbers :|
|Limit – km/h||50||90||110||130|
|1) Witdrawal period: 12 months.
2) By repetion within 2 years 24 months and imprisonment up to 60 days
10% in all cases; additionally, outside towns there is no penalty for 10 km/h speeding.
Rumours say that you are safe within +10 km/h in urban areas and within +20 km/h outside.
Important links – all in Croatian but easy to translate:

In Croatia you start with zero points. With 9 points collected during 3 years you will lose your license for 12 months. However, if you lose 3 points for one offence you will also immediately lose your license.
In addition to the speeding offences above, there are many more reasons for points):
- Illegal overtaking: 2 points
- Not stopping before a red light: 2 points
- Drinking and driving, from 0.5 g/l in blood sample: 3-5 points
