Vehicle impoundment happens when a driver has been given at least two final verdicts for some of the eight offences recognised as causes of the most severe road accidents.

Since 1 August 2019, when the relevant legislative amendments went into force, 59 drivers in Zagreb have had their vehicles temporarily impounded pending a final decision while courts have decided to permanently seize five of those vehicles and a motorcycle.

The repeat traffic offenders were also fined, sentenced to prison and given a temporary driving ban.

One offender was given a prison sentence of 50 days, which is the longest sentence so far, while another was fined HRK 27,000 (€3,600), the highest fine so far.

Police say they will continue with activities aimed at enhancing road traffic safety and culture in the capital in line with the national road safety plan.

The list of the eight gravest traffic offences includes exceeding the speed limit in an inhabited area by more than 50 kilometres per hour, driving in the opposite direction, running a red light on purpose, refusing a blood alcohol or drug test and DUI, driving before obtaining a driver’s license and driving with one’s driving license seized or suspended.
