Malaga drivers pay the price


MOTORISTS in Malaga are among the worst offenders in Spain when it comes to traffic offences.

The province was hit with the third highest amount of traffic fines in the country from the start of January to the end of August this year.

And Andalucia is the worst region of the country in terms of the amount paid for traffic offences.


Just under €11 million was paid by Malaga drivers during the eight-month period, according to government figures.  Only Sevilla (€13.6 million) and Valencia (€13.4 million) paid more in motoring fines during the same time period.

In the Andalucia region, a total of €52.5 million in fines was administered – accounting for 21 per cent of the national figure – almost twice that of nearest challenger Castilla y Leon with €28.4 million.

The Traffic Department of Spain earned a whopping €243.8 million in the first eight months of the year.


  1. Not surprising. From what I see daily travelling between Fuengirola and Marbella I wouldn’t put a Spanish driver in charge of a bicycle. They are the worst I have ever come across.
    Lane hugging, no signals, double parking (even on roundabouts) ignoring traffic lights, it all happens here.
