Traffic offences and fines in Mauritius Page 1 of 3.

We searched the internet high and low, for the most recent update on traffic offences and fines in Mauritius.

We conclude that the Mauritian government's web site, the special road safety unit, would be the source however, we believe that the web site may not be updated with the latest amendments to the law in Mauritius. We'll research it further with the Government of Mauritius and then update respectively.

To provide different perspectives of the respective fines we have converted them into different currencies. This said, fines are paid in MUR.
