Although Luxembourg is a tiny country, it has its own, very special, legal system
And Luxembourg has a comprehensive fine catalog on everything from no foreign license (€12 – foreigners only) to overtaking on a bridge (€75). It seems strange then, that there is no license withdrawal at all.
|The important numbers :|
|Limit – km/h||50||90||130(1|
|LICENSE )2||79 km/h||141 km/h||202 km/h|

Be aware: The possesion of any radar-jammers or detector is prohibited and may be sentenced with jail from 8 days up to 3 years.
You can find more at The Police Grand Ducale website.
Speeding and other traffic offences are subject to on-the-spot fines – if you do not pay the police may take your vehicle in custody for up to 48 hours and you may have to go to court.
