The draft Implementing Decree amends Implementing Decree No 134/2018 of the Ministry of Transport and Construction of the Slovak Republic laying down the details of the operation of vehicles in road traffic, which was notified in accordance with Directive (EU) 2015/1535 as Notification 2017/0599/SK.

b) to specify more closely the meaning of the expression ‘heavily affected visibility from the driver’s seat’,

c) to lay down that bicycles and scooters fitted with an auxiliary motor are not deemed to be vehicles that can be classified as category L vehicles.
