Default New speed limit

Please note that on the road around the bay towards Alcudia the speed limit is now only 50 km/s on most of that stretch. The police are enforcing it by mobile laser guns, and I know someone who recently got caught there and a landed a 300 euro fine. Beware!

In the area of the Club Pollentia (former Sun Club) puts a radar of the civil guard's traffic, where there is a sign at 50 Km/h speed limit, a logical speed in midsummer, but clearly irrational in low season. From 66 Km/h the fine is € 300 (150€ per payment) and 2 points.

Absolutely sure, he was doing 68 in the 50 limit and got 2 points as well. The police car was on the driveway to Club Pollensa

good idea, as lots of vehicular / pedestrian activity around the Club

had a few hairy moments getting in/out over the years, looking forward to our first stay there for a while, as kids wanted 'one more time' before they stop coming away with us

will still get into the port for beers/music etc, though

Ultima Hora Feb 28th

Quote;

Traffic fines can not be paid in cash

The Directorate General of Traffic (DGT) has reported that as of next Monday is eliminated encashment in the Provincial and Local Offices Traffic penalties in voluntary period.

The fines can be followed in these centers paying by credit card or debit card.

The DGT has recalled in a statement that fines can also pay through their website (Virtual Chief Traffic section), as well as branches of Banco de Santander, in post offices and by telephone at 060 ( number where you can also get information about it).

Finally, the DGT has indicated that in order to make the payment of a fine Always provide the docket number listed in the complaint that the agent has delivered or on the notice received.

Interesting. I wonder what they do with tourists. Having no residence they might not be compliant. I wonder if they could be arrested if they have no means of immediate payment?

I would imagin it would be the same as if you were snapped by camera. They would go through the car hire route ~ via registration ~ and either send the payment demand through the post/email, or deduct from source of credit card, details of which the car hire companies have.
