New Road Laws in Majorca

New road laws came into effect on May 9 this year and they mean that anyone driving or cycling in Mallorca has to polish up their act. Here’s a quick run-down of some of the new laws.

Exceeding the speed limit by just 1kmph can result in a fine. The motorway speed limit has increased from 120kmph to 130kmph, but in towns it’s down from 30kmph to 20kmph. Speed camera detectors are now illegal.

Child car seats are compulsory and the Guardia Civil can impound any vehicle found carrying children without them. There are also new guidelines about how children of different ages can be seated.

Drink drivers are subject to a minimum fine of 1,000 Euros if found to be twice over the blood alcohol limit.

Cyclists under the age of 16 must wear helmets and car driers are more responsible for the safety of all cyclists.

If you think you can handle these law changes, you can most certainly handle renting a car from us.
