0 in about 15k km. Had 2 warnings though, one for parking near an intersection and the other for going 67 in a 50km per hour zone. I didn't give a bribe or anything, just had a chat with the officer

Exactly like in France !!!

I drive since 1993, but got my license in 1998. Since then:
1) fine in France (2001) for driving ... 137 km/h instead of 90 km/h, which got my driver's license suspended for 10 days, 4 points less, and 230 EUR...
2) fine in Lithuania (2003) for driving 74 km/h instead of 60 km/h entering Lazdijai. I remember the fine was the equivalent of 15 EUR
3) 2005: 90 EUR for driving "too fast according to the road conditions" on the A15 (that is: when cops don't follow you, they can't take points from your license. There is a 110 km/h limit)
4) 2006: 124 km/h instead of 90 near Barcelonne-sur-L'Adour. 135 EUR, 2 points (as they put 118 km/h on the fine)
5) 2011: 56 km/h instead of 50 km/h. 90 EUR (arount 3 AM), 1 point - entering Saint-Germain-en-Laye from Port-Marly. The funniest part is:
a) I knew that radar, but a strange car distracted me; & when I saw the "end of built-up area", I accelerated too soon
b) I was coming back from a party at a friend's house ... & this friend is a cop !

Upside down than in Spain.
Before the "points driving licence" it worked like that, but after that... no matter for paying but should the fine includes a points decreasing, it is the car's owner responsibility to declare who is driving his car at any moment.
The fine will arrive to car's owner. He has 15 days to say who drived the car. Should he do not remember or anything with no answer... the points are decreased to owner.

(should the car is property of a company, even a rent a car, and do not declare the driver, they can get a very great fine)

Every driver started with 12 points (8 points new drivers). A fine can come together with several points decreasing (2 to 6).
Three years with no point decreasing, you increase 2 ones more (up to 15).

Should you lose all your points, it is similar than no having driving licence. You must make tramits to have a new one (different procedure but too long also).
Should you drive without driving licence (doesn't matter if you do not have, if you have lost all your points or the licence is expired) with last driving law you go directly to prison. No intermediations... police checks your data, checks you do not have licence and takes directly to prison. Next day they will send you to the jugde but be sure that night you will sleep on prison.


This system started in july 2006. All drivers started with 12 points (and they made news about which drivers lost all points in less than one week).
In july 2009 I got two points more. Today I have 14. If in july 2012 (six months more) I keep with no fines, I will arrive to 15 (maximum).

Accidents started to decrease after that system.

None. I only had one close call where I think I drank just under the limit.

Parking fine... i parked by the side of a road over the dirt.

Apparently the city inspectors forgot to enter the fine into the computer system so nothing comes up yet, hope they never do it.

But its very fair from France that they generally not send any tickets to some countrys. So, i can report that the radar fixs are working very exactly - [email protected] no flash, 56 flash. In 2011 i made around 20 photos there.

Its usual in Austria to flash from behind because the car owner needs to tell the driver, but germans need not to pay cause it doesnt work with german law.

In Spain similar. Depending of danger situation but usually 150 EUR and up to 4 points in your licence (three times you do it and you have to claim for a new one with all the procedure).

Since two years ago, it is possible a 50% discount (75 EUR in this case) if you pay in less than 15 days.

In Bulgaria you start with 39 points, but you can loose 10 at a time for red light, not using the seat-belt, speeding with more than 40 over the limit (12 pts &€250) etc. Smaller fines go without points, or with 3 to 5. You can go to payed courses and exam and get back 13 points once in 12 months (means that if I have 20 points and go to such exam now and get 13 more (33), I wont have right to go again until same time in 2013). If you don't have any fine for a period of 24 months, your points get automatically back to 39. If you loose all points, you can't get your driving licence for at least 6 months.
When car get's flashed by speed camera (or other CCTV - red light, wrong lane etc.), you have to go to the police and declare who drove, otherwise the owner of the car gets the fine. If the car is registered to a company - the manager has to declare who drove or, as responsible for the whole company and it's actives - gets the fine.
