DGT introduce strict new penalties

New rules that have come into force in an effort to further reduce the number of deaths on Spanish roads.

Stricter penalties for people caught holding a mobile phone while driving are now in force, as are fines for exceeding speed limits when overtaking.

Anyone caught with a mobile phone in their hands while driving will now face a €500 fine and six penalty points added to their licence.

Speed limits in urban areas and cities have also been reduced to 20km/h, and anyone overtaking a vehicle now cannot exceed the speed limit.

The penalty for the misuse of seatbelts and helmets has also been increased, with those who fail to use either correctly facing a loss of four points from their licence.
