Two new laws of the Highway Code in force
24 February 2011
Two new changes applied since February 2011 have been made to the regulations about the highway code. In fact, the authorities have undertaken a process of harmonization with regard to speed limits.
First, the speed limit speed of passing zone of 40-50 km/h to 60 km/h.
Second, the speed limit on highways was revised following: motorways, A-roads (main roads through cities and towns), B-roads (main roads within cities and villages) and UR roads (road not part of the categories mentioned).
Speed limit for traffic traveling on the highways
Cars - 110 km/h
Motorcycles - 80 km/h instead of 110 km/h
Mopeds - 80 km/h instead of 40 km/hr
Buses/trucks with total weight not exceeding 3.5 tonnes - 80 km/h instead of 70 km/h
Truck with one or more trailers - 60 km/h instead of 50-55 km/h
Speed limit for users of A/B/UR roads
The minimum speed of 40 km/h passes a maximum of 60 km/h. However, the government prerogative to revise downwards this limitation is still.
