Default New regulations for drivers in Mallorca


Penalties for drivers in Mallorca

Drivers caught using their mobile phones or exceeding the 30 kilometre an hour speed limit will have 6 points slapped on their licence, according to a new package of legal reforms approved by the Council of Ministers.


The objective is to create a new road safety model that will reduce fatalities and serious injuries by 50% over the next decade, in line with World Health Organisation recommendations.

On roads with one lane of traffic in each direction the maximum speed limit has been reduced from 50 km an hour to 30 and vehicles are forbidden from exceeding the speed limit whilst overtaking on conventional roads.

Here are the main measures:

1. Point Card Reforms
- The number of points deducted for driving whilst holding a mobile phone in the hand increases from 3 to 6. The 200 euro fine remains the same.
- Carrying radar detection devices or similar equipment is a serious offence, even if they are deactivated and will result in a 500 euro fine and three points.
- Cars and motorcycles must not exceed the speed limit by 20 kilometres an hour when passing other vehicles on conventional roads.
- Using unauthorised intercom devices in driving tests will be considered a very serious offence and sanctioned with a 500 euro fine and a 6 months wait before appearing again.

2. Urban Mobility
- It will not be possible to exceed 20 km an hour on roads that have a single carriageway and pavements.
- In streets with a single lane in each direction, the limit will be 30 km an hour.
- In streets with two or more lanes of traffic, the limit will remain the same at 50 km an hour.

3. Personal Mobility Vehicles
- Vehicles with one or more wheels equipped with a single seat and powered exclusively by electric motors, such as scooters and segways, will have a maximum speed of 6-25 km an hour. Vehicles for people with reduced mobility such as wheelchairs are excluded.
- VMPs and scooters may not be used on sidewalks, pedestrian areas, inter-urban roads, crossings, motorways and highways that pass through towns, or in urban tunnels.
- Users will have to comply with the same rules of the road as other vehicles, so drivers may be subjected to a breathalyser test and headphones may not be used.
- These three measures will come into force on January 2, 2021.

The speed limit on the Ma-10 between Andratx and Pollensa is being reduced to 60 kilometres an hour.


“The aim is to strengthen road safety, slow down traffic and improve coexistence between road users and residents of the Serra de Tramuntana," they said in a joint statement. “Horizontal signs are being installed, to clarify where overtaking is permitted, notify drivers of the 60 kilometre speed limit and signal curves and other conditions on the road.”

The speed restrictions are also designed to combat reckless driving, particularly in the section of road between Sóller and the Puig Major, ...
