From Wikipedia about speed limits:

Quote:
Due to legal requirements for speed measuring, the speed limits for expressways and highways are de facto 133 km/h (83 mph) and 155 km/h (96 mph), respectively.
Does it mean you get fined when more than ~25km/h + ?

But is it officially approved or the police just don't bother to stop those <150?

They have a margin in the Netherlands, somewhere between 3 km/h and 7 km/h, depending on speed. This is not some goodwill from the police, but their measurements are not 100% guaranteed correct.

In the Netherlands they do it with an exceeding of 3 or 4 kph AFAIK. When the measure in a police car, and they measure an exceeding of 52 kph, they have to correct it by distracting 5% correction, so the exceeding is 49 kph. When you exceed more than 50 kph, after correcting, your licence is taken. AFAIK this is only for the A and N roads.

No, in most cases it's + 20 - 25 km/h, even for speed cameras.

You must also know that as for speed limits we're a specific country, and like 90% of all cars goes 15 - 25 +, and there is always a chance of someone going way too much and he's the one to stop.

I'm orientating for my holiday next year. It might be somewhere along the Croatian coast. How are waiting times before the borders of;

-> Slovenia <-> Croatia
-> Croatia <-> Bosnia (Neum only)
-> Croatia<-> Montenegro
-> Croatia <-> Hungary

All in early June, so not in the peak travel season. Are there strict controls? I drive in a cargo van, so I hope they won't strip-search my car for drugs (they did that on the Danmark - Sweden border).

1. Shouldn't be more than 5mn, if you avoid weekends
2. None
3. Possible queue direction Croatia, but I guess it shouldn't take too long
4. Idk, but I guess the same as Slovenia

Since it's early June, I think you won't have to wait longer anywhere.

in august at neum there was no control, we had to drive 5-10kph so border police could look at our faces, and at croatia-muntenegro border we had to wait 45min due to large ques.but in june it's posible i think to pass through that border in less than 20min.don't forget to buy montenegro vignette(10euros).

yeah, MNE eco-tax costs 10€ i think (i know that it is unbelievable 150€ for lorries!)
btw in June you won't have significant waiting times at border crossings. you could have jams at some main toll-stations if there is extended weekend (holiday at mon or fri, or even at tue or thu).

btw, everybody's talking about no stopping at Neum, but i had that luck few times that i had waiting time up to 30 min.

control is not strict, but you can allways run onto custom officer with bad day (what is not rare at all among custom officers worldwide )

I'd actually like to know that about the crossing Marsici and Crnica (sorry for forgetting those extra stripes on the s and c's ). That's route 201/208

Črnica (and i guess slovenian is Maršiči) that's one of 3 bc's in Istria and the least crowded (although in July and August there are also crowds)
