EXCESS SPEED: Continues to be the most common reason for drivers being fined.

THE Direccion General de Trafico has announced that the total number of unpaid traffic fines in the province of Malaga has reached €1,145,331, out of a total for Spain of €20 million, and this is the second highest amount in accumulated fines in the Andalucia Region, after Sevilla. 

Drivers from Madrid have the most accumulated fines and people in Melilla are the most responsible in regards to paying. The fact that a driver hasn’t paid the fine, doesn’t mean that it will disappear as each fine remains on record for four years, and there may be additional charges levied in respect of late payment if you are finally caught up with.

Excess speed continues to be the most common reason for drivers being fined, and up to the end of 2015, the speed checks have recorded 27.5 million drivers breaking traffic rules.

      I know speeding can be a problem but personally I think the biggest problem causing accidents on Spanish roads ‘certainly in Andalucia’ are people driving driving too close to the car in front… then total ignorance in what a ‘Give way’ sign means!
      I know that road accidents have supposed to have come down since they got tight on speed limits but I really do think the distance is a bigger issue.
