According to the provisions of the Traffic Laws from 1 January 2023 Italians will pay higher fines by 10%. Blame the automatic biennial increase provided for by article 195. Yet another sting for motorists in sight then? It just seems not.
During the press conference to present the design by budget law for 2023, in fact, Minister Matteo Salvini declared that, in concert with the other ministries, work is being done to stop the automatic automatic fines.
A provision invoked by numerous consumer associations, worried about the umpteenth series of price increases due to the galloping inflation that characterized 2022.
What the law says
As mentioned, the automatic increase in fines is included in article 195 of the Highway Code, which reads
“The extent of administrative fines is updated every two years by an amount equal to the entire variation, ascertained by ISTAT, of the consumer price index for blue-collar and white-collar families (national average) which occurred in the previous two years. For this purpose, by 1 December of each two-year period, the Minister of Justice, in agreement with the Ministers of Economy and Finance, of Infrastructure and Transport, sets the new limits of the administrative sanctions, following the above criteria pecuniary, which apply from 1 January of the following year. These limits may exceed the maximum ones referred to in paragraph 1”.
The date to be noted is that of December 1st 2022the limit within which the competent ministries will have to discuss the stop to increases, thus setting the limits of the pecuniary sanctions.
Increases which, according to some projections, would be equal to 11% and would bring, for example, the fine for forbidden access to the Ztl (such as Area B and Area C of Milan) from 83 to 92 euros, from 42 to 46 euros for the prohibition parking and from 173 to 190 failure to inspect the vehicle.
