Government approves higher speed limit on some roads

17-04-2013

The Czech government on Wednesday approved a bill that will raise the speed limit on some roads from 90 to 110 kilometres per hour, the news agency ČTK reported. The higher speed limit will apply to dual-carriageways classified as 1st class roads. Those will however have to undergo safety audits by the Transportation Ministry before the speed limit is raised. The new legislation approved by the cabinet will, among other things, allow municipalities to sell towed vehicles whose owners fail to recover them within six months.
