European Union - Directive - Remedy for breach

The Case

European Union Directive. It was not in issue that the restriction of compulsory insurance to the use of a motor vehicle intended or adapted for use on roads and to its use on a road or public place was not consistent with the decision in Vnuk v Zavarovalnica Triglav d.d (). However, the Administrative Court held that only a declaration would be granted and dismissed the claimant's judicial review proceedings in all other respects.
