New road rules during luxury car event

By Staff Writer - May 20, 2019

The Monaco Government has outlined a set of guidelines that will be applied to this year’s Top Marques event. The highly anticipated car show attracts supercar enthusiasts from across the globe and is held just days after the Monaco Grand Prix.

Noting a level of unruly behaviour at previous events, the government has amended its road rules to include new regulations.

Now, any drivers found to be breaking the law with regards to speed limits, dangerous driving, non-compliance with noise levels and lack of driver’s license will have their car impounded for 120 hours and receive a fine of up to €1,000.

They will also have their driver’s license suspended in Monaco for a period of up to three months.

Furthermore, test drives will not be allowed to be carried out on public roads during the event this year.

“The Prince’s Government counts on the civic sense of all road users to ensure that the Top Marques event takes place in the best conditions and that the Principality remains a global showcase for high-end cars,” said the government in a statement.
