IT’S a question that has caused much debate.. how much faster than the speed limit can you go without being snapped by speed cameras?

Well, thanks to the Guardia Civil, we finally have the answers.

In a post on Twitter, police confirmed that on any speed limit up to 100km/hr, you can add 7km/hr without being snapped.

For example if the speed limit is 50km/hr, you can travel 57km/hr, if it’s 80km/hr you can travel 87km/hr etc.




On speed limits from 101 km/h upwards the leeway is 7%.

So if the speed limit is 110 km/h, you will be snapped driving at 117.7 km/h.

Police reminded drivers ‘the road is not a racetrack’.
