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.

dghr272 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.

The Spanish Police FB site explains that you can exceed the limit when overtaking, BUT only in certain circumstances.

Edit, the link above provides a great resource that covers many aspects around driving in Spain.

raynipper I bet the tolls will be free after I have used them to get to Portugal.

erneboy 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.

StewartJ With regard to the 3500kg do the Spanish authorities have full access to the DVLA database? Asking as my MH came out of the factory at 3500 but I had it upped to 3850kg.

Geoff, I'd think that an over 3500Kg van will be classed as heavy (as is case in UK or France etc.), although without official confirmation I'd stick to the lower limit.
