IN just 10 months, speeding motorists were fined over €4 million along a single stretch of road north of Malaga city.
The road has two speed traps that issued over 100,000 fines in the second half of 2014.
The fines often come in pairs, as many motorists are caught and fined by both radars.
According to the European Automobile Association, one of the two speed cameras — located between kilometres 134 and 140 — issues more fines than any other radar in Spain.
While the second radar found between kilometres 125 and 128, is fourth on that list.
Speeding fines often come as an unexpected expense to tourists who rent cars during their Spanish vacations.
In an extreme case, one 60-year-old Swedish tourist reportedly received 15 separate speeding fines of €100 each over a two-week period.
