Spanish speed limit reduction comes into force in March


THE government has decided to reduce the speed limit on dual carriageways to 110kph to help people save petrol. The law, which was announced by the Government Vice-president and Interior Minister, Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba, will come into effect on March 7, and has been announced as a provisional measure, although no mention was made of when it might be lifted.

The government claims the sole purpose of reducing the speed limit from 120kph to 110kph is to help people survive the constant rises in petrol prices, mainly due to the situation in Libya.


Meanwhile, Renfe will reduce the price of medium and short distance train tickets to encourage people to use trains.
