Strengthened measures during events with potential for inappropriate behaviour and dangerous driving by drivers of cars with large engines on the public roads
The Prince’s Government would like to draw attention to the fact that some particularly entertaining events can draw in large numbers of vehicles that are likely to cause serious disruption to public order.
These often unplanned gatherings of sports cars lead to proven road traffic offences being committed, and to inappropriate and dangerous behaviour.
The Prince’s Government is determined to curb such incidents as far as possible, and to take more effective action against those responsible for occasional disruption, in order to ensure peace and public safety for residents of the Principality.
As such, in line with the measures taken during previous events, offending vehicles will be impounded for an extended period during the following events:
- 80th F1 Monaco Grand Prix – from 25 to 28 May 2023
- Top Marques Show 2023 – from 7 to 11 June 2023
In the event of a violation of the Highway Code, vehicles will be immediately impounded and kept for 120 hours.
