Default Spanish Speed limit changed

Hi all

Just heard that since early March this year - the speed limit in Spain was changed to 110 kms per hour...

Watch out for the speed checks

I have seen many new 110 signs already in place.

Also I believe they are installing average speed cameras

Cool Re: Spanish Speed limit changed

Seems a bit bizarre not to say perverse - you'd think that they would put the speed limit up so that they would get more tax and VAT in these days of austerity. I wonder if the Osborne has thought of that!
