5th May 2021
Don’t forget the changes in some speed limits in Spain from next May 11!
SPEED LIMITS: On May 11th, 2021 speed limits in Spain will change, as 6 months have passed since this new law’s publication in the #BOE by Royal Decree 970/2020, of November 10th that modifies the RGC.
NEW GENERAL SPEED LIMITS on URBAN ROADS, the following:
km / h on roads that have a single carriageway and path/sidewalk.
km / h on single lane roads per direction of travel.
km / h on roads with two or more lanes per traffic direction.
These apply within towns / villages / cities, urban areas.
FINES for EXCEEDING the SPEED set by the road, depending on how much the imposed limit is exceeded, can be either SERIOUS or VERY SERIOUS, thus differentiating the amount of the penalty.
The margin for mistakes will always be applied to the corresponding speeds of course. You will not be fined for going exactly 1km over the speed limit! Don’t forget they allow space for mistakes
