    just been researching something else on the web and came across this.....

    don't know how well known this is but thought I'd post it as a warning..



    Speed cameras are used in Spain to detect drivers exceeding the speed limit. As of August 2010, some cameras (on the AP-7 in Castellón, on the A-7 in Murcia, on the A-31 in Alicante and on the A-52 in Zamora) are equipped to alert the nearest traffic officer in the event a foreign-plated car is caught exceeding the speed limit. The officer receives a photo of the offending car and has the authority to pull the vehicle over and impose a large on-the-spot fine. If the fine is not paid the car may be immobilised. More such cameras are planned to be installed.

    Sorry... I'm being a bit slow tonight (no ticket for me then)... what's the problem?

    People being fined for speeding?

    What is wrong with that?

    JJ :Cool:

    nothing wrong with that JJ...if you knew you were.....but imagine your happily tootling down a spanish road minding your own business and Juan Sheet and his compadra's pull you over.

    you'd wonder what the hell you'd done to get stopped....

    "Senor, you were speeding !"

    "No i wasn't"

    "yes, you were Senor...through Castellon yesterday !"



    forewarned is better than confused :thumb:

    Surely it's not just for foreign cars?
