FROM speed demons to lazy parkers, it seems drivers in Spain are fine about fines.
Just 1.15% of drivers in Spain are appealing their traffic fines from the General Directorate of Traffic (DGT), significantly lower than previously.
Whereas 2.35% of fines were questioned in 2011 – some 89,000 appeals – the number fell to almost half that last year, just 49,000.
But only one in 10 appeals were fruitful last year, with just 11.87% resulting in the fine being rescinded.
It is thought that the 50% discount for paying your fine swiftly is a driving force behind the drop in appeals, which can involve a lengthy process.
