Toll payment in Belarus 2023
Belarus has an automatic BelToll system which is compulsory for all drivers of cars and trucks. This does not apply to vehicles under 3.5 t, which are registered in EEU (Belarus, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia).

Speeding fines in Belarus 2023
In Belarus beware of corrupt police officers lurking around every corner! They will ask you for a bribe, and sometimes it is better to give it to them, as you may be unpleasantly escorted to the station and spend five hours there.
Also pay attention to the prohibition of smoking in the vehicle and the use of the designated road, if you only transit through the country. It is worth knowing the official fine rates and threatening the office with contacting the British Embassy if necessary. We do not recommend violating any laws and regulations.

- 20-30 km/h: £12,2050 Br
