Beware because as of Monday (28th) the new speed limits on national (N-340 for example) roads came into effect meaning that the top speed is 90 KPH.
The General Traffic Department has made the fining margins on speed limits narrower; i.e. the amount surpassed over the limit before fining takes place.
The previous Government reduced the maximum speed on the nation’s autovìas from 120 to 110 kph, but it was it soon revoked. Now the present Government has decided to raise to 130 kph on certain stretches.
The head of the DGT (Department of Transport), María Seguí, is worried that the recent decision to put toll booths on hitherto free-to-use autovias will push the accident rate up.
