|Gretchibald||We were into our second weeks holiday in France this year when our son phoned to say that a 90 euro speeding fine had arrived at our home from France . I am careful to stick to the speed limits but must have missed one , apparently we were doing 58 in a 50 somewhere near Puy En Velay.|
Update on AP7 toll removal.....
"Motorway concessionary company Aumar started a process on Wednesday to make 140 workers redundant. State news agency EFE noted that this is due to the removal of the toll booths on the AP-7 between Alicante city and Hospitalet de l’Infant in Tarragona, which will be completed by December 31. Full story in Friday’s Costa Blanca"
As far as I understand, as other Spanish toll concessionary contracts end booths will be removed.
How sensible. But do that beside a camera and yer cooked.

The last time we went there (and stuck to the limits) I was informed that it is quite OK to exceed the limit while actually overtaking.......
I do not know if this is true or not so can anyone give me some reliable information ?
I bet the tolls will be free after I have used them to get to Portugal.
Why would they care?
If you're of a nervous disposition stick to the lower and correct legal limit limit and if not don't and take the chance. For sure if they do bother and the take the time to look at your plated weight it'll be the more recent plate along with the info. on your V5 that'll count. Personally I'd guess that they couldn't care less and it won't arise unless you get caught going along at well over the limit for the lighter van.

|nicholsong||So what is an >3.5t MH - van or lorry?|
