CEE countries to get tough with foreign drivers


Bulgaria is among eight Central and Eastern European countries that have signed a mutual agreement on stricter penalties for offences by drivers visiting one of the group of countries.
Hungary’s MTI, quoting Hungarian justice minister Tibor Draskovics, said that it was in the countries’ common interest that foreign drivers should face sanctions equivalent to those faced by local drivers. 
He said that the system would take effect in the next few months. The agreement was signed at a meeting in Warsaw on May 29 2009. 
The countries involved are Austria, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia. 
In September 2007, Bulgaria brought into effect a system allowing road police to confiscate the driving licences of motorists from other European Union states who violate Bulgarian driving regulations. 
At the time, The Sofia Echo reported that foreign drivers usually received only minor fines for violating driving rules in Bulgaria. The new convention's text says that the violator's home country has no right to replace the confiscated driving licence with a fine or any other penalty, The Sofia Echo reported.
