    New regulations for traffic fines are going through the Senate and will come into effect soon.



    If a radar inhibitor of any sort is installed in the car, the fine is anything up to €6,000 and the loss of six points.

    A fine of €1,800 will be levied if the car has been involved in a serious or very serious offence and the national police authority (DGP) is not notified of who was driving the car. There will be no loss of points for this.

    If the vehicle weighs less than 3,500 kilos and has no valid insurance the fine will be €1,500, no loss of points but the vehicle will be immobilised for one month. If the vehicle is parked and has no insurance then the fine is €800.

    If the driver doubles the legal alcohol limit, is a frequent offender or refuses to take the breath test then there is a loss of six points and a fine of €1,000. The same applies for driving under the influence of any amount of drugs.

    Am almost sure this will only affect Spanish nationals. No country can put points on a non nationals licence.

    Only DVLA can put points on a UK licence. When I was working I would never have had a licence if points could be put on by other countries :Wink:.

    So it's not just the UK that uses the motorist to raise revenue. Any idea what 'radar inhibitor' covers?
