# Traffic fines 2024: an overview of all fees

## Rates increase by 10 percent

The amount of traffic fines is reset every year. The government looks at developments and also at the consumer price index (CPI), to compensate for monetary depreciation. For the 2024 traffic fines, the period between June 2022 and June 2023 was considered. Based on these figures, it was decided to increase the tariffs of the Traffic Administrative Enforcement Act (Wahv) for 2024 by 10 percent, of which 5.7 percent is inflation-adjusted and 4.3 percent is additional increase.

## Higher fines: additional revenue for government

The 10 percent increase in the rates – as included in the Wahv document – will increase “Fines and Transactions” revenues in the Ministry of Justice and Security’s budget by about €43 million in 2024, rising to about €59 million from 2028. This includes the expansion of the number of digital speed cameras and focus flashers and the replacement of the current number of route control systems.

## Administration fees fines 2024

In the Netherlands, the Central Judicial Collection Agency (CJIB) is responsible for sending and collecting fines for violations. All amounts mentioned in this article on traffic fines 2024 do not include a 9 euro administrative fee. That amount will remain the same in 2024.

## Traffic fines sensitive topic

The level of traffic fines has been a sensitive issue in the Netherlands for years. Indeed, in recent years, rates have risen each time. Sometimes with a few euros, but also with larger amounts. The fact is that in the Netherlands you have to pay handsomely if you commit traffic violations, whether it’s running a red light or speeding.
