Serious traffic offences including drunk-driving, speeding and not belting up already fall under Euro laws. The new bilateral treaty adds offences that would usually not land you in court. Belgium already benefits from a similar agreement with France.
Belgian government minister Jacqueline Galant and Didier Reynders have welcomed the accord with the Dutch. Mobility minister Galant has welcomed the measure that brings the end of impunity for Belgian traffic offenders in the Netherlands much closer: "Recorded offences should lead to punished offences. This goes for everybody including foreign drivers.”
