Rijksoverheid, the Dutch government, published a “Decree on annual road fines for 2020” last week. In 2020, some offences will be punished by higher fines. 

Not all fines for offences on Dutch roads will increase in 2020. However, you will face more severe fines for driving too fast. According to the decree, fines for exceeding the speed limit will be:

How much does the driver exceed the speed limit? Speeding ticket in a residential area Speeding ticket in a residential area, in the 30 km / h zone Speeding ticket outside the residential area Speeding ticket on the highway
5 km / h 35 euros 56 euros 32 euros 30 euros
10 km / h 72 euros 108 euros 68 euros 64 euros
20 km / h 194 euros 269 ​​euros 185 euros 174 euros
25 km / h 263 euros 347 euros 248 euros 232 euros

 

In 2020, the amounts of speeding fines will also increase in places where road works are carried out:

How much does the driver exceed the speed limit? Speeding ticket in a residential area Speeding ticket outside a residential area
5 km / h 56 euros 46 euros
10 km / h 108 euros 91 euros
20 km / h 260 euros 230 euros
25 km / h 347 euros 308 euros
