Belgium has new rates of fines for certain offences, for example manipulating the tachograph or using another driver’s card.
According to the new law drivers can expect the following penalties:
Penalties for infringements relating to the waybill, driving and rest periods, tachograph, driver card, etc. also increased: from 44,000 to 80,000 euros. If you pay the fine immediately after the inspection, the maximum amounts are 10,000 euros instead of 5,000.
According to Belgian law, drivers of vehicles registered abroad are obliged to pay immediately fines for road traffic offences. If the driver is unable to pay the fine vehicle will be taken to a parking lot. It can only be collected after the payment of a fine as well as the cost of parking, and shipping and the costs associated with the vehicle parking.
