Malaga speed trap issues ‘most fines in Spain’

TWO speed traps on the road north from Malaga City in Las Pedrizas area issued 100,690 speeding fines in the second half of 2014.
In fact, the one between kilometres 134 and 140, the second drivers reach on their way downhill towards the city after the tunnels, has been reported by the European Automobile Association as the radar in Spain that issues the most fines, while another one between kilometres 125 and 128 came fourth on the list.
Drivers and residents of nearby villages are up in arms over the situation, especially as fines tend to come in pairs as both radars catch speeders and issue fines. One Swedish tourist reportedly collected 16 fines in just two weeks while on holiday in the area.
With earnings from the two radars surpassing €4 million in just 10 months according to the government, locals claim they are aimed more at filling the government’s pockets than improving road safety, yet the authorities insist the controls are necessary as a preventive and dissuasive measure.
