In accordance with the Roads Act (ZCes-1) of the Act of rules in road transport (ZPrCP), Družba za avtoceste v Republiki Sloveniji, DARS d.d., as the operator of motorways and highways in the Republic of Slovenia, is obliged to remove all obstacles from motorways and highways, which also include damaged, broken, and abandoned vehicles and thereby ensure safe traffic flow.
In cases, when vehicles that have broken down or stopped are left on the emergency lane of the road or in the emergency turn-off and do not pose a significant threat to other road users, the driver of the vehicle will still be able to arrange its removal by calling assistance or other towing service of his choice (own organisation of the removal of the vehicle). In cases of own organisation of the removal of the vehicle, the vehicle must be removed from the highway or expressway within two hours. Otherwise, the vehicle will be removed by the highway operator at the driver’s expense. If the driver cannot arrange the removal of the vehicle on his own, the removal of their vehicle will also be organised by the highway operator (call 1970). MORE
