Carrentalspain.org Launches Revamped Website Offering Guidance On Spain Traffic Laws

Posted: Updated:

Car rental comparison site meets increased traffic incidents with tourist education.

London, United Kingdom – June 9, 2014 /MarketersMedia/ –

Statistics from the travel industry reveal Spain attracts more than 50 million tourists each year, catapulting the country to the rank of second most popular tourist destination in the world. With this growing visitor count comes an increase in the demand for vehicle rental as well as an escalation in the number of traffic incidents stemming from ignorance of local driving regulations. In an effort to help improve traffic conditions for locals and tourists alike, Havard Jonassen of Spain vehicle rental company, Carrentalspain.org has launched a revamped website providing guidance pertaining to the country’s common traffic laws.

Jonassen confirmed, “In addition to our complete array of vehicle rental comparison and booking services, we are also known for providing tips for making booking an Airport car hire Spain more simplistic for our customers. Now, we also offer a list of our country’s most commonly breached traffic regulations as well as an explanation of the fines those in violation of these laws may face.”

Many of the laws governing the roads of Spain are similar to those in America, revolving around speed, influence of drugs and alcohol and use of seat belts. Regarding speed limits, American tourists must keep in mind road signs as well as vehicle speedometers in Spain will display speed limits and readings in km/h rather than miles per hour. That being said, the speed limits range between 50 km/h in residential areas and 120 km/h on the highways.

According to Carrentalspain.org, all vehicle occupants must wear seat belts with no one under the age of 12 allowed in the front seat and children 3 and under required to ride in car seats. Blood alcohol level above 0.05 percent is illegal as is blowing the horn in residential areas between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Using turn signals is required, and using mobile phones without a hands-free device is forbidden. Fines for violating these and other rules of the road vary from the equivalent of $400 to $2,000 depending on the type and degree of infraction.

Concluded Jonassen, “Hopefully, with these guidelines, we can help make the roads safer for everyone and increase the level of courtesy from those unfamiliar with our regulations. Through the education we now provide, we can also help reduce the amount of fines our more than 1 million American tourists are subjected to by inadvertently breaching driving and parking laws. By extension, we can help enhance the entire vacation experience for guests in the beautiful country of Spain. These and other helpful tips can be found at www.Carrentalspain.org.”
