Motorists be warned, your speeding free-for all is over.
The DGT, the traffic department, has announced that it has now repaired all of its speed cameras and has 850 newly conditioned speed cameras ready and waiting for "Operation getaway " which began in earnest yesterday.
In April the new Director General of the traffic department revealed that she had inherited a woeful legacy from her predecessor and routine inspections had revealed that the majority of speed cameras on the national highways were out of order.
A concerted campaign has been underway to rectify the situation and there are now 850 "fine collecting points " awaiting speeding motorists across Spain.
Between the hours of 3pm on Tuesday 31st July and midnight of the 1st August, 2.7 million long and medium distance traffic movements are expected to take place.
Catalunya has the most speed radars with an average of 18 per 1000 kilometres, whilst Murcia has only 4.29 per 1000 kilometres of carriageway, all of which are concentrated on the A30, A7, MU-30 and RM-11.
All cars driving on the roads in France must now carry a breathalyser kit by law
The DGT has also issued a reminder to any drivers planning to drive down through France to Spain that French law now insists that every car using French roads carry a portable breathalyser kit. These can be bought easily in petrol stations, supermarkets and retail shops and cost around one Euro each.
The fine for not having one in the car is €11 and this can rise to €33 in the case of non-payment of the fine.
