  4. Motorways in Finland: Speed limits, fines…

    Speed limits in Finland

    On the major roads, speed limits are reduced in the winter months (from October to April). They are intended to improve roads safety due to slippery road surfaces and short days.

    • In cities and built-up areas: 50 km/h
    • Outside of built-up area: 80 km/h
    • On roads for motor vehicles: 100 km/h in summer, 80 km/h in winter (sometimes even 70 km/h)
    • On motorways: 120 km/h in summer, 100 km/h in winter

    The maximum permitted speed for buses is 100 km/h.
    The maximum permitted speed for trucks is 80 km/h.

    Fines in Finland

    In Finland, speeding is closely monitored and fines are linked to drivers’ income. Speed control radars activate at 6 km/h above the permitted limit. There are no consequences up to 10 km/h.

    Ferries in Finland

    Finland also called the “Land of thousand lakes”, is a country with more than 179 thousand islands, which is why there are several ferry companies and ferries are an integral part of the transport. Strategic connections, especially where ferries replace bridges, are served free of charge by the state carrier.

    A map showing all ports can be found at Here you can find ferry schedules, traffic information and other essential information for your travel.

    Ferry to Finland

    The easiest way to get to Finland is by ferry. Direct lines are available from Germany, Sweden and Estonia. The cruise can be booked, for example, on the website.

    Ferry from Germany to Finland

    Finnlines offers ferry routes between Germany and Finland. It is possible to travel from Travemünde to Helsinki. The price when booking is well in advance for a one-way ticker for 2–4 people and a car starts at €427. If you book a return cruise, you will receive a 20% discount.

    You can join Star Club, and save even more as a club member with an opportunity to be the first to receive Finnlines bargains and promotions.

    Ferry from Estonia to Finland

    The Tallin–Helsinki route is operated by Tallink and Silja line. The price for one-way ticket for 2 people and a car ranges from €75. The prices also depend on the time you travel. Late evening trips are generally cheaper. It is possible to save a few euros by buying a return ticket.

  5. Speeding fines in Finland 2024

    The Finnish fine system is non-negotiable, as in any Scandinavian country. However, the fines here are lower than in Sweden and Norway. We do not recommend speeding, as there are a number of automatic radars and patrols.

    In Finland, fines are based on your monthly income and the number of children you have, which is then used to calculate the number of so-called daily fines, which were first introduced by the Swiss. This means that you will pay a set amount each day until you reach the total amount of fines.

    A wealthy driver can then pay astronomical sums, for example, the head of Nokia paid 116 000 EUR, or a certain Swedish tourist then 80 000 EUR, just for speeding!

  6. Driving fines in Finland 2024

    In Finland, minor traffic offences are subject to so-called “traffic fine fees”, which are fixed and set by law. There are no fines as we know them, but administrative fines. The amount of fee is influenced by the person on whom it is assessed. The charges for pedestrians and cyclists are different from the charges imposed on motor vehicle drivers. The police usually deal with such offences on the spot.

    The fee for a traffic fine ranges from €20,00 to €200 depending on the nature of the offence. For example, the fine for a pedestrian traffic offence is €20,00, but for a motor vehicle driver the charge for a traffic offence is €100.

    If a fine is imposed for more than one offence, the most severe traffic fine for those offences will be increased by €40.

    The traffic fine must be paid within 30 days of receipt of the penalty charge notice. The fee for the traffic fine shall be paid using the payment details specified in the notice. When paying the fee for a traffic fine, you must use the reference number on the fine notice.

    If a driver has been guilty at least four times in two years or three times in one year of driving offences, the police may impose a driving ban on him.

    • Red-light running – €100
    • Failure to comply with entry ban – €100
    • Using a mobile phone while driving – €100
    • Driving without seat belts fastened – €70

    For motorcyclists, moped riders and their passengers it is compulsory to wear safety helmets.
    Helmets are compulsory for all cyclists.


    If weather or road conditions require, winter tires must be used from November 1 to March 31. It is a driver’s responsibility to ensure that the vehicle has winter tires in winter conditions.

    Studded tires are permitted during this period and may be used out of season if weather or road conditions require so.

    Winter tires with a minimum tread depth of 3 mm must be used on the following vehicles:

    • Vehicles with a total weight not exceeding 3.5 tonnes.
    • Vans
    • Special purpose motor vehicles of a maximum total weight of 3.5 tonnes.
    • Motorcycles, mopeds, tricycles, quadricycles, heavy quadricycles and light quadricycles

    In difficult winter conditions (snow or slush on the road) the tread depth of winter tires should be at least 5 mm.

    Seat belts

    In Finland, all passengers must wear seat belts.

    In 2006, the obligation to use seat belts in busses and coaches came into force. On all buses, passengers must wear a seat belt or other restraint device if fitted to the seat. Since 1999, it has been mandatory to equip new buses with seat belts on all seats. This requirement does not apply to buses intended for public transport with standing room for passengers.

    Children in the car

    When transporting a child under 135 cm in a passenger car, van or lorry, a car seat suitable for their height and weight must be used.

    Children under the age of 3 must not be transported in a car without a car seat.

    In the extreme case, where the child car seat cannot be installed in the car, children over the age of 3 may sit in the rear seats.

    Drinking and driving

    The maximum blood alcohol limit in Finland is 0.5 per mile or 0.22 milligrams of alcohol per litre of breath.
    Driving under the influence of alcohol carries a ban between 2 months and 5 years, depending on the amount of alcohol in the blood.

    For example:

    0,5 ‰ – 0,59 ‰ – driving ban for 1-3 months for the first time, 6-8 months in case of recidivism
    0,8 ‰ up to 0,89 ‰ – driving ban for 2.5–4.5 months for the first time, 7.5–9.5 months in case of recidivism
