Four traffic infractions the DGT might not fine you for immediately

The General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) does not think twice when it comes to fining drivers who do not respect road regulations. These fines from Traffic can sometimes be high, and most of them reach us almost immediately after committing the offence.

This type of fine is usually the result of committing an infraction relating to one of four different manoeuvres that the traffic officers do not notify drivers of at the time of the offence.


These are the four cases:

• When the vehicle is stopped in a way that poses a danger to road traffic.

• If the driver of the parked vehicle is not present.

• If the infringement has been recorded through means of capturing and reproducing images that allow the vehicle to be identified.

• When the reporting officer is carrying out surveillance, control, regulation, or discipline of traffic, and does not have the means to proceed with the monitoring of the vehicle.

You can check online to see if you have any outstanding traffic fines, or, you can simply check anything to do with your vehicle. The DGT has a new website, and the section dealing with traffic fines can be found at.

From this page, you can navigate to other sections of the website that cover among other things, driving licences, and vehicle documentation, as reported by
