    Pray to god you dont get pulled over in Slovenia or they will throw the book at you. No leniency whatsoever,no signs that radar control near,they hide their patrol cars just to get you (especially foreign reg)…just like old time eastern european cops. Best dont bloody go to/through the country.(dont bieve the adverts its not as nice as they say).

    Is there any possibility to cancel your fee if the speed control is not well indicated? In italy many years ago was crazy like now in slovenia but many drivers opposed to the fees because speed control must be a system to limit speeds and not to amount cash! Now speed controls are well indicated with signs and lighta before you reach them.

      I really don’t understand your point. So traffic signs with speed limit are not indicative enough for you? You would like to have another sign that would additionally emphasize the meaning of the first one or what? As one would say… the first sign was there just because but now with this second one we really really really mean it.

    There is indeed a penalty point system, that also applies to foreign drivers (though in this case the points are only administered in the national police database, and aren’t transferred abroad). A driver can accumulate up to 18 points (7 for drivers under 21 or with than 2 years of driving experience), after which the license is revoked. The tolerance varies between 3 and 7 km/h depending on the speed limit and radar type.

      In addition, if you pay within 8 days (or on spot for foreign nationals), you are entitled to a 50% discount.
