Speeding fines in North Macedonia 2023
A common occurrence in Macedonia is the absence of a road sign (or its concealment) and then a standing patrol enforcing the fine. It is therefore advisable to drive according to the regulations and follow all signs carefully.
Zoran Popovski, who is in charge of criminal policy here, has long insisted on increasing the fine rates, which has finally happened. In relation to salary, Macedonia has some of the highest fines in Europe. They often exceed local salaries.
Fines, although Macedonia’s currency is the Macedonian denarius, are calculated in euros, presumably for better comparison with other countries.
- 10-20 km/h: £17,2420 €
