At the moment, drivers in Romania are waiting for the price cap on RCA policies. We remind you that in February, the Ministry of Finance proposed a draft government decision, developed in collaboration with the Authority for Financial Supervision, which involved temporarily limiting, for 6 months, the RCA insurance premium rates charged by insurers. At the end of March, the project in question was approved by the Competition Council, according to the Minister of Finance.
