R4 Košice - HU border

As you can see, the section is almost completed, except one interchange which delays opening of entire expressway.

Hi,
I have a question about speed cameras in Slovakia. Poland has the least safe roads in the EU (the largest number of people killed in road accidents per million inhabitants) Currently, we have in Poland discussions about building safety (speed) camera system in Poland. For example, Germany has reportedly 4,000 speed cameras, and France 3000 speed cameras. Poland would have about 500 speed cameras, plus some (20-30) unmarked police cars with speed video recorders, and segmental velocity measurement system (which measures what is your average speed between points A and B). Yesterday on the air of national television was a discussion about speed cameras. The journalist leading the program is against speed cameras. He gave the example of Slovakia, which recorded a huge drop in the number of people killed on the roads, but supposedly Slovakia has only 12 speed cameras. is this true? Can you write something about the speed camera system, unmarked police cars with speed video recorders, and segmental velocity measurement system in Slovakia? How the big drop in the number of killed in road accidents was achieved ?

Fixed speed cameras do very little to improve traffic safety. Most people drive a stretch of road frequently and are aware of their locations. Although red light cameras can reduce red light running and subsequent accidents, it is also an accident maker. The ring road of my city (Zwolle, Netherlands) always has accidents at intersections with speed/red light cameras, but almost never on intersections without them. It's not uncommon to see people make an emergency brake at such intersections, causing the typical front-tail accident.

By the way Greece has by far the unsafest roads in the European Union, at over 140 fatalities per 1 million inhabitants. Poland is about 35% below that.

I've never heard about any fixed speed camera in SK.

But we have high fines for speeding:

6-15 km/h 20 €
15-25 km/h 40 €
25-29 km/h 60 €
29-35 km/h 130 €
35-40 km/h 200 €
40-45 km/h 300 €
45-50 km/h 400 €
50-55 km/h 520 €
55-60 km/h 650 €

"Accidental" speeding until 29kmh is not a fortune though.
After that it get's expensive .

+15km/h can be really accidental and +30km/h should be enough for safe overtaking.

What law do you have about loosing driving licence for speeding?
In Poland goverment think about loosing driving licence when you reach double speed limit (eg: speed limit is 50 km/h and you drive 103 km/h)

One more question: what penalty points system do you have in Slovakia?
In Poland we have very liberal penalty points system (if i compare it to Norway or Germany)

We don't have penalty points at all, only thing worth mention is that if you commit 3 serious violations within 12 months you have to go for psycho test and take an exam what will cost you up to 200 euro

Another thing, driving with alcohol level higher than 0,1% (1 promile) will take you to the court and your driving licence can be suspended. You may also go to the jail, but usually it results in "Suspended Sentence"

Hello.
I need to go from Romania to Prague. As i m going from Budapest to Bratislava and then heading to Brno and Prague, my question is :
Do i have to buy a motorway vignette for D2 in Slovakia? It is only 60 km from Hungary to Czech Rep. if i presume right. Or should i leave the motorway for that 60 km?
If i need too buy one, there are joint vignettes for Slovakia and Czech Republik?

Thank you for your reply.

no, there are no joint vignettes for CZ+SK. You need to buy 10 days (10€) or 30 days (14€) slovak vignette. This part of D2 is for free:

the rest is paid and according to google maps, it will take you extra 45 minutes to pass through Slovakia, if you would like to avoid paid sections

Or you can bypass Slovakia through Austria, like this. I did it twice last year. 45 minutes more driving for 10 Euro saving worth it in my opinion. But if you are returning from Prague in less than 10 days then it's better to use the motorway.

According to Google it's faster and shorter, if you go through Slovakia on toll-free roads. Although it also depends on time, when you travel, rush in Bratislava may delay you, in Austria you drive on country roads.
