DRIVERS in Sevilla face a 90 euro fine if they spend longer than 45 minutes in the city from this Autumn.
The city centre will be divided into four zones with 13 entry and nine exit points which will be monitored by cameras that can read number plates.
The fines will be in place from Monday to Saturday between 8am to 10pm.
Cameras will start to be installed next week with public transport, motorbikes, mopeds and vehicles loading and unloading excluded.
However, residents and hotel guests will only be excluded from the one zone they occupy.
The scheme, introduced by socialist City Hall leader Alfredo Sanchez Monteseirin, will cost 2.1 million euros.
