    In 2014, Wallonia has already been ordered to pay 3,171,384.78 euros in compensation to citizens adversely affected by the bad condition of roads in the south of the country, according to a parliamentary response by Walloon Budget Minister Christophe Lacroix reported by Sudpresse on Tuesday. Wallonia has seen itself targeted with compensation claims from the public after a driving accident or damage to their vehicle, bicycle or boat, for example, the public arguing that the region failed in its duty to ensure safety through adequate highway or waterway maintenance or because of some other oversight.

    Court convictions led to 2,826,646.83 euros being paid in damages this year by DGO1 (Operational Branch Roads and Buildings, part of the Public Service of Wallonia). As for DGO2 (Operational Directorate-General for Mobility and Waterways), they have had to pay out 344,737.95 euros.
