Amount of fines for traffic violation

In Bilbao, as well as in other European cities, adherence of traffic rules is strictly monitored, and punishments are rigorously enforced. Follow the speed limits and traffic rules, do not drink at the wheel, and most likely, a meeting with the road patrol service staff will be a threatening one. There is also a chance to get fined in everyday life. We have collected the most common situations you should beware of:


All this time, we've been speaking how to make the most of your trip budget. Now let's talk about how to avoid unexpected expenditures, for example, fines. Most of them can be avoided by following generally adopted rules of conduct, law-abiding behaviour, sticking to street cleanliness, and public order. However, be attentive to various warning signs on the streets and buildings, therefore, avoiding having lunch in the wrong place or accidentally entering a restricted area.

It is possible to rent an exclusive car at affordable price and spoil yourself, that is undoubtedly nice. Good operating search is a great advantage for an aggregator.

When renting a car, I always look at the completeness of the provided services and consider the final cost. Among different resources, only carsscanner.com offers a full package of insurance and additional options, while on other similar resources these services are often paid.

We went to conquer the desert and flew to Dakar. We felt like real riders at the rally. We reserved the cars via this site in advance in order to get the necessary number of cars. We were pleased with a wide choice of cars, so each of us selected the car he liked. We paid for the cars directly and without fees via this resource as well. Everything was very good. In the future I'll use this portal with great pleasure.
