Points and fines for speeding offences

Points and fines for speeding offences


The newspaper LasProvincias.es has published a Tabla de sanciones de velocidad / multas y puntos  – table of points and monetary fines that speeding offences attract. Just click on the image to see it full size.

The speed limits are in red circles across the top, and the columns underneath are divided into sections depending on the amount by which someone is speeding (e.g. 31-50 or 51-60 etc in a 30km area). The top row carries a fine but no points (sin puntos). The far right column is the amount of any fine (multa) in Euros for a given speed offence (e.g. €100 with no points for doing 31-50 in a 30km area, or 41-60 in a 40km area, and so on).

I hope this is useful as a ready reference for anyone who’s been fined, or anyone who wants to know their rights in advance. I’ve added this to the Driving Laws section of the Links page as well.

    I’m afraid I don’t know, since it’s a UK traffic offence, but it seems to me that the choice is to accept the penalty – with you paying the fine but her getting the points – or to appeal it.

  3. With the fine notification there will be a section on it where your friend will need to signify who the driver was. The driver will then get the fine and the points( which will be three with those speeds), unless the police offer a speed awareness course rather than giving the points.
    Failure to nominate the actual driver could get your friend a larger fine, costs and 6 points!
