The following regulation has been discussed for many months, and was finally laid before Parliament a few days ago (11th April). It comes into effect on 6th May 2017.

I drive to Germany quite often Via the Hull to Rotterdam Ferry

 

I see from that that if i commit a traffic offence while i am there that they will be given my details on request

 

But what happens then, If they fine me, How do they make me pay it, Can they request that points are put on my licence ?

 

Or will they just wait until the next time i am there and enforce any fine ?

The following is taken from the Explanatory Memorandum:

 

 

http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2017/554/pdfs/uksiem_20170554_en.pdf

 


The purpose of the instrument is to require the Secretary of State (acting through the Secretary of State’s executive agency, the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency, referred to below as the “DVLA”) to provide to another Member State
the identity of the registered keeper of a vehicle registered in the UK
(and certain other information) from the statutory register of vehicles and their keepers maintained by the DVLA, if requested by the Member State to facilitate their being able to investigate the commission in their country of an alleged road safety related traffic offence with that vehicle which took place after the instrument comes into force.

 

It designates the Secretary of State as the national contact point to process requests for such information and to request corresponding information in relation to such offences committed in the UK using vehicles registered in other Member States.

 

The road safety related traffic offences to which the instrument applies are:

 

Drink driving

 

Driving while under the influence of drugs

 

Failing to stop at a red traffic light,

 

Failing to use a seat belt (or child restraint)

 

Failing to wear a safety helmet

 

Using a mobile telephone or any other communication device while driving, speeding, and the use of a forbidden lane

I've not had a chance to read the Explanatory Memorandum so can only assume the answer will be here:

Question: This Legislation states 'Member State' i.e. EU but will this not have to be amended again when we are fully out as they then would not be a 'Member State'?

I think it is obvious. The foreign authority will follow what local laws require. So, if jumping red light in Germany is subject to a €2,000 fine, you will receive a €2,000 penalty ticket by post.

 

No, penalty points on a driving licence can only be applied by DVLA and this Act does not change it, nor does it instruct DVLA to accept penalty point requests from any foreign authority. So, additional penalty points are out of question.

 

Worth noting that this is nothing new and UK drivers have long been receiving penalty tickets from many EU countries while driver data was shared through mutual agreements. Now, to make things easier, all EU countries will have a single piece of legislation.

The article says the new law applies if you "park incorrectly", but I don't think that is correct. The list of offences quoted earlier doesn't include parking.

It's only 'safety' (read: revenue) -related offences that are covered - speeding, which is the main one (they are losing a lot of revenue and they don't like it), plus not wearing a seat belt, jumping red traffic lights, etc. There are about 7 of them.
