The Municipal police deals with driving violations. Penalties for offenses are imposed fines to be paid on the spot. If the driver refuses to pay a fine, the offense is forwarded to the Regional Inspectorate of Transportation in Žilina.
Locking devices are used to prevent the cited motor vehicle from leaving. Called "slippers", they are used by the municipal police when the driver is not in the vehicle and the vehicle is in a restricted space. In the town of Žilina, offending vehicles are not towed away.
