The article analyses of the Hague Convention on Law Applicable to Traffic Accidents of the 4 May 1971. Article 2 of the Hague Convention lays down the general rule: the applicable law is the internal law of the State where the accident occurred. At the same time the Hague Convention states a lot of exemptions from this general rule. In some cases it leads to the application of the law of the country of the vehicle’ registration involved in the accident. The Hague Convention determines the action sphere of the applicable law. The feature of the Hague Convention is that persons who suffered injury or damage has the right of direct action against insurer of the person liable. The problems of correlation of the provisions of the Hague convention and EC Regulation on the law applicable to non-contractual obligations of the 11 July 2007 were considered in the article.
