Traffic law

Traffic law represents that part of the law which, in the broad sense, is concerned with road traffic law, aviation law (also referred to as air traffic law), inland shipping law, carriage by rail and maritime law. Broadly speaking, therefore, traffic on public roads.

The basic regulations in Belgium are to be found in the ‘Law regarding police road traffic’ and in the Royal Decree on the general regulations on the road traffic police and the use of the public road’. This Royal Decree is, of course, better known as the Road Traffic Regulations or the Highway Code.
