SpeedgunDRIVERS in Andalucia are more likely to be caught speeding than anywhere else in Spain.

Central government raked in €130 million in radar gun fines in 2014 and Andalucian drivers contributed 20% of the pot.

By March this year, €27 million worth of fines had already been dished out across the country and Andalucian motorists footed most of that bill, too (€7 million).

In contrast, motorists in Cantabria, La Rioja and the Balearics are less likely to be caught speeding – with each area accounting for under €2million worth of fines in 2014.

  1. Looks like the speed limit has had some effect, although it has always been there, and the UK has recently introduced even harsher penalties. I think you will find people that have been caught speeding or drink driving are the worse offenders, potential killers and should have the book thrown at them. I know some friends of mine that have been caught under these conditions have now learned a lesson, they drive within the speed limit and don’t drink if using a car, but a taxi home if they have been drinking. Speed and drink don’t mix.
