What is the EU Cross-Border Enforcement Directive?

A new EU cross-border directive related to traffic offences came into effect in the UK in May.

The directive aims to track down drivers who commit certain traffic offences in vehicles that are registered in an EU Member State different to where the offence was committed.

The Directive covers the eight most common traffic offences:

  1. Speeding;
  2. Failing to use a seatbelt;
  3. Failing to stop at a red traffic light;
  4. Drink-driving;
  5. Driving while under the influence of drugs;
  6. Failing to wear a safety helmet;
  7. The use of a forbidden lane;
  8. Illegally using a mobile telephone or any other communication devices while driving.
