Enforcement of Government ordinances in mid-March 2020 to curb the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic had an important impact on transport
In bus passenger transport, port and airport passenger traffic in March 2020, the reason for the decline in traffic can be largely attributed to the adoption of the Ordinance on the Temporary Prohibition and Restrictions on Public Passenger Transport in the Republic of Slovenia, which entered into force on 16 March 2020 as a measure to curb the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic. The drop in registrations was the result of two other ordinances: the Ordinance on the Provisional Prohibition on the Offering and Sale of Goods and Services to Consumers in the Republic of Slovenia, which also entered into force on 16 March 2020 and limited the activities of specialised stores selling motor vehicles, and the Ordinance on Temporary Suspension of Technical Inspection of Vehicles and Other Procedures Relating to Car Licence and Tachograph Workshop Activities, which entered into force on 17 March 2020.
