The Netherlands tends to have high fines for offenses that are rarely enforced. The real revenue is in speeding fines up to 10 km/h over the limit.

The minimum wage in the Netherlands is € 1550 per month. But the cost of living is also much higher, including traffic fines. € 380 / month is less than what I pay for rent in subsidized housing.

But I have almost always been treated correctly by the police after being stopped. And even if you get a fine it is a reasonable amount, not like my home country, the Netherlands. Fines there are ridiculously high. For instance, using your mobile phone while driving gets you a fine of about 40 euros, in Slovakia and in Germany, but in the Netherlands it will cost you 230 euros...
I've been stopped 3 times in Slovakia and each time at least 1 of the pair of officers spoke English. Admittedly twice was in Liptovsky Mikulas which is a tourist town, but also once late at night in Presov. I was let off with a warning both times in LM, and while I was fined €30 in Presov, I was also given an escort out to the edge of town (I had claimed I was lost)!

In my travels to Eastern Europe i had much more nice helpful policemen than some wich asked for a fine. I can't find a difference between countries. But of course a dozen travels is not enough for statistics.

15 years of dialnice.szm.sk

One of the first web sites specialising in motorways and expressways in SVK had been www.dialnice.szm.sk. During the years it went through some name changes, it was known as highways.sk and photo sections are also developed on other web sites, nevertheless, it still stays as one of the best information sources about Slovakian motorways.



Other good sources about Slovak motorways as at the end of 2016 are:

www.dialnica.info (mostly photo site)
www.ndsas.sk (official site of Motorways and Expressways Directorate NDS)
www.historiadialnic.sk (motorways history in SVK)
www.zilinskedialnice.sk (motorways in mostly Zilina region)
www.dialnice.info (discussion and photo forum)

Bratislava second, or outer ring construction works, together with expressway R7 section officially began in October 2016, see press release. However, it was just laying a basement stone by politicians. From that time all motorway websites in Slovakia regard these sections as under construction. In October earthing works were performed at R7 Dunajská Lužná - Holice and in January pictures from earthing works of adjacent section appeared at www.dialnice.info.

Initial construction works on other sections, also according to above mentioned article, should begin in March/Spring this year.

I searched MichiH's list, and could not find it.
As far as i understand the article, until Oct. 2020 all sections should be finished, maybe some in April 2020 or end of 2019.

It mentions archeological investigations, which are not finished yet in one place, and land aquisition (or withdrawal) which is not completed everywhere.

But does it give exact sections with star and end points for MichiH's list? There is not length provided either.

Its just saying there is a total of 27 km for D4- Ring road
and 32 km for R7, 59km altogether.
