Czechia – ambiguity regarding the driving ban on July 6

July 5 and 6 are public holidays in Czechia (Cyril and Methodius Day and the Anniversary of the Death of Jan Hus). July 6 is a Saturday when a holiday driving ban is in effect. The overlap of the two banks makes it difficult to determine the exact hours when the driving ban applies.

According to current regulations, HGVs are prohibited from driving on public holidays, from 1:00 PM to 10:00 PM. This year, however, the second day of the holiday falls on a Saturday during a holiday period, when an additional driving ban is in effect from 07:00 AM to 1:00 PM. As a result of this overlap, HGVs would have to remained parked from 07:00 AM to 10:00 PM.

To clarify this situation, the Czech Ministry of Transport has explained that the holiday ban takes precedence. If a day on which driving restrictions for certain vehicles apply is a public holiday, the restriction applies in accordance with § 43 section 1 letter a) of Act No. 361/2000. This means the driving ban on July 5 and 6 applies from 1:00 PM to 10:00 PM.
