According to DGT data, the 50 DGT radars with the most ‘fines’ received a total of 941,061 complaints in 2020, a decrease of 23% from the 1,224,374 complaints received by the 50 most active radars in 2019. This decline is primarily due to vehicle restrictions associated with numerous states of alert associated with the coronavirus health crisis.
The second most active speed camera in last year’s ranking is located at kilometer point 478 of the AP-7 in Valencia (with 58,266 drivers reported); the third is located at kilometer point 13 of the A-4 in Madrid (37,316); the fourth is located at kilometer point 256 of the A-7 in Rincón de la Victoria (34,317); and the fifth is located at kilometer point 10 of the SE-30 in Seville (33,163).
Madrid has the most speed cameras (eight), followed by Malaga and Seville (four each); Pontevedra and Valencia (three each); Alicante, Baleares, Burgos, Castellón, Ciudad Real, Granada, and Murcia (two each); and A Coruz, Cádiz, Cantabria, Cuenca, Huesca, La Rioja, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Lugo, Navarra, Salamanca (one each).

Finally, the DGT issued a total of 3,887,035 fines on Spanish roads under its authority last year, a decrease of 17% from the 4,683,671 levied in 2019, owing to mobility restrictions implemented to combat the Covid-19 pandemic.
