Super fines, drug tests and license suspension: the new driving rules


Road safety crunch

Strengthening of measures to combat driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, with the introduction of a ban on the consumption of alcohol for drivers who have already been convicted of specific offences. These are some of the novelties of the road safety bill approved by the Council of Ministers on Tuesday 27 June. We must adopt a zero tolerance policy towards those driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, with immediate driving suspension for up to 20 days for the first episode and, in the event of a repeat offence, driving suspension up to 30 years old, said the Minister of Infrastructure and Transport, Matteo Salvini, in the morning to Rtl. It is also stipulated that on safer sections of motorway, with a very low accident rate, exceeding the 130km/h limit will be allowed, he added.
