THE SPANISH Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, alongside the Director of the DGT, Pere Navarro, has announced a new reduced speed limit for Spain’s secondary roads.
The interior minister confirmed this week that the new maximum speed limit for a large proportion of B-roads will be 90 km/h.
This reduced speed limit will be applied to stretches of Spanish roads which currently allow speeds of 100 km/h.
Fernando Grande-Marlaska claims this measure will be enforced to: “Try to match the maximum speed in these types of roads in other countries around us”.
The new measures will affect a total of 7,000 km of roads in Spain.
Pepe Navarro, DGT Director, claims that Spain’s B-roads account for 76% of the country’s road fatalities each year.
Neither Fernando Grande-Marlaska nor Pepe Navarro confirmed when the new measures will come into effect.
