Police are gearing up to the official Christmas traffic campaigns, and are already reminding drivers, especially ones who are visiting Tenerife for a winter break, of the general maximum – and minimum – speed limits on roads, as well as the fines and points system applicable for speeding offences. Below is a graphic tweeted by Arona Policía Local of the general speed limits for different types of vehicles on different types of roads.
When it comes to sanctions, Tráfico publishes HERE the Tabla de sanciones de velocidad / multas y puntos, the table of points and monetary fines that speeding attracts. In the graphic below, speed limits are 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; below that, the two far right columns show the amounts of fines and points deducted from a licence.
