Criminal fines abroad

We would like to draw your attention to an interview given by Ms Adriana Grau for the magazine “Przewoźnik” about the fines imposed by German authorities.

The article briefly presents the fine procedure in force in Germany. Ms Grau points out that there is a rule in Germany, applied in many countries, that any foreigner who is fined must pay the fine at the place where it is imposed. If the fine is not accepted, the officer refers the case to the court. It should be noted that even in this case, the driver will be charged a security deposit for the proceedings, the amount of which is usually equal to the fine.
